What steps must I take as a mobile home owner before selling, moving or trading in a mobile home?
• Bring the title or registration to the Treasurer's office.
• We will research and examine for taxes, penalties, and interest that must be paid in full, including the Current Year Taxes (One-Year-In-Advance) on the mobile home.
• If moving, there is a $10 fee for Single-Wide and a $20 for Double-wide mobile homes and we will need the address information of where the mobile home is being moved to.
• If being sold or trading, we will need the new owner's name and mailing address so they can be correctly be billed.
• If mobile home is paid in full, including the Current Year Taxes, We will issue a tax release to you to take to NM M.V.D. to transfer title or update their information.
• Once the title is transferred, you must take the new title to the McKinley County Assessor's office to update their records and complete the process. If moving, you will need to take the title and report to the County Assessor that the mobile home is moving to.
