If an individual or business sells three or more mobile homes in North Carolina over a 12-month period, and the homes were not the seller's personal residences, a license is required. A license can be obtained by filing an application with the North Carolina Department of Insurance.
Mobile home sales are part of the manufactured housing sales industry in North Carolina, and the rules that apply for manufactured housing sales also apply to mobile home sales. Licensing is handled through the Office of the State Fire Marshall, which is a division of the North Carolina Department of Insurance. Dealers who wish to receive a license must go through the application process. Those who want to sell mobile homes are also required to apply for a license, as well as take an examination.
