Mobile Home Registration
All mobile homes must be registered in Florida. Mobile homes will be issued a numbered decal, as opposed to a license plate, according to the length of the mobile home. Double wide and triple wide mobile homes are considered two and three separate units, respectively; therefore, each unit must be registered separately. Decals must be displayed in the lower left-hand corner of the window located closest to the street.
Mobile home decals expire each year on December 31 and will be charged a delinquent fee if not renewed by January 10.
The following documents are required to register a mobile home in person:
- Present the current or last-issued registration certificate for the mobile home.
- If the registration certificate is not available, you must present the title to the mobile home or obtain a copy of the title from the lien holder.
- To transfer the title, bring the bill of sale and current title signed off by the previous owner.
Mobile Home Real Property Decals
All mobile homes or recreational vehicles permanently affixed to the owner’s land and declared as real property are issued special Real Property Decals. Owners must secure Form DR-402 from the Property Appraiser’s Office after showing proof of ownership and present it with a payment of $5.10 to the Tax Collector’s Office. Decals are permanent and transferable to a new owner when the mobile home and land are sold as a unit. The owner’s name must be identical on the land and mobile home titles.
