A Manufactured Home is a one-unit dwelling built on a permanent chassis in accordance with the National Manufactured Construction and Safety Standards Act as promulgated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and affixed to a permanent foundation. The manufactured home is required to reflect the HUD Certification Label that is a metal plate that is affixed to the exterior of each transportable section of the Manufactured Home.
The HUD Certification Number appears on each HUD Certification Label and evidences compliance with the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards. The HUD Data Plate/Compliance Certificate is as well required. This Certificate is a paper label mounted in the Manufactured Home that contains, among other things, the manufacturer’s name, trade/model name, year manufactured and serial number, a list of the Certification Label number(s), etc. The Data Plate is typically affixed in a readily accessible and visible location (e.g., near the main electrical panel, or in a kitchen cabinet, or a bedroom closet).
