The recent changes in the American banking system have made the distinction between a chattel mortgage and tradition real property financing more important than it used to be. When buying a mobile home or manufactured home, the first thing your broker will ask is if you will be buying with land or home-only.
Everyday I am asked about the differences between mobile home loans and real property site built homes, and how these differences affect the mortgage loan processes for these homes. Generally speaking, a manufactured home mortgage is a written document which gives a creditor an interest in the property of a borrower to secure payment of a loan debt. While this broad definition blankets all mortgage loans, the different types of homes, or collateral, are what draw differences between manufactured home, or chattel, loans and traditional stick built home mortgages. In the United States, chattel mortgages are referred to as secured transactions. Such transactions are governed in most states by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. When obtaining a loan for a manufactured home, a borrower will be entering into a chattel mortgage.

Real property mortgages and loans can and should be additionally evidenced by a Deed of Trust document, which is recorded with the County Recorder. The Recorder is a county official that insures that instruments are recorded, giving public notice of such transactions. The Deed of Trust for the mobile home will be recorded with the County Recorder of the County where the real property is located. Manufactured home mortgages, or chattel loans, are not secured in the same fashion as real property loans. The title information for manufactured homes is maintained by The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. In the State of California, The Department of Housing has "Registration and Titling" offices that are specifically assigned to maintaining the title information on Manufactured Homes. The homeowner, or purchaser, of a manufact...
