Permits are required for all transfers and moving of mobile homes. If the mobile home is no longer owned by the person listed on the assessment notice, the owner must bring the mobile home title to the County Treasurer's Office and apply for a Mobile Home Title Transfer Permit. 

A mobile home owner who sells the mobile home to another shall provide the purchaser with the permit required before the sale is completed. This obligation does not apply to a mobile home offered for sale at an auction under IC 9-22-1.5 or IC 9-22-1.7. (IC 6-1.1-7-10.4) A person who violates this commits a Class C infraction. (IC 6-1.1-7-14)

All property taxes must be paid to obtain the permit including property taxes assessed to previous owners.  If a permit is to be issued after midnight, January 1st, the taxes due and payable May 10 and November 10 of that year must be paid along with any taxes payable in preceding years before a permit can be issued.

It is vital that mobile home transfers be obtained to prevent the titled owner from being saddled with future taxes after ownership has transferred.

Notifying the County Assessor will not transfer the assessment records to the new owner. The only way to accomplish this is to apply for a Title Transfer Permit through the County Treasurer's Office and complete the process through the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles.  

Upon receipt of the Mobile Home Title Transfer from the County Treasurer's Office it must be taken along with the title to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles for the transfer of the title. 

Hendricks County has established a $10.00 fee for issuing all mobile home permits to be paid at the time of issue.   

The "Permits" are only valid up to 90 days from the date of issue.
