• Permit requests must be in our office no later than 3:30 PM to be processed the same day. If multiple requests are made on or after 3:30 PM, they will be processed the next business day.
  • A mobile homeowner 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).
  • A permit will only be issued from Hendricks County Treasurer if the mobile home is located within the county.
  • Permits are required for all transfers and moving of mobile homes. Below are the steps to obtain a permit:
      1. The owner must bring the original mobile home title to the County Treasurer’s Office and apply for a mobile home permit.
      2. All property taxes must be paid to obtain the permit including property taxes assessed to the previous owner. We suggest contacting our office prior to arrival to obtain the amount due. If a permit is to be issued on or after January 1st, the taxes due in that year must be paid along with any taxes payable in preceding years before a permit can be issued. If the tax amount is not out for the current year, an estimate will be provided.  Please NOTE this is just an estimate.  Any additional balance due after the bill is calculated must also be paid.  If it is not, it will be certified to court, sent to collections, and will be collected before a permit is issued in the future for this home.
      3. Additional information required.
        1. Transfer- Name, address, and phone number of purchaser.
        2. Moving- Address of where home is moving to.
      4. Hendricks County has established a $10 fee per permit to be paid at the time of issue.
      5. Upon receipt of the mobile home 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 this title.
    • 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.

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