Selling a mobile home is very similar to selling a car. Unless you are also selling the land where the mobile home is based. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has a checklist that you can refer to. I have seen mobile home transfer go very smoothly without any attorney involved.

A buyer may feel more comfortable having an attorney prepare the purchahse and sale agreement. From experience, just the back of the title/registration needs to be transfered.

Sometimes selling a mobile home is not as straightforward as you think, you might want to consult with a real estate attorney.

When in doubt contact a lawyer. In Florida you can also contact the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you are considering purchasing a house in Indian River County, FL. please think of me.
