Mobile Home Changes
This section provides information on how to update the owner name when a mobile home is sold or if it is relocated.
The name used for setting up your property tax account is the name of the property owner(s) as specified on the Deed registered in the provincial land registry. Normally, when real property ownership changes, the deed is registered and filed with the Registry Office under the authority of the Registry Act. However, a Mobile Home is not included under the definition of “Real Property” in the Registry Act and therefore no deed is registered.
I bought a mobile home to be moved
In order to update the owner name and/or location of a mobile home, a Mobile Home Change / Advice form must be completed and submitted to Taxation and Property Records. If more than one person owns the Mobile Home, each owner must sign the form. Without this form, property tax notices will continue to be sent to the previous owner even though the new owner is liable for all unpaid taxes.
I bought a mobile home on a parcel of land
If a mobile home AND land change ownership, the purchaser is required to file an Affidavit of Purchaser for the land purchase with the Registry Office and complete a Mobile Home Change / Advice form to be submitted to Taxation and Property Records. If more than one person owns the Mobile Home, each owner must sign the form.
