METHODS OF IDENTIFICATION AND VERIFICATION

MANUFACTURER / TRADE NAME

  • Located on the HUD Data Plate / Compliance Certificate located inside of home.

  • Located on the Name Plate / Logo attached to the exterior front or entry door side of home.

YEAR OF MANUFACTURE ( Not the Model Year )

  • Located on the HUD Data Plate / Compliance Certificate located inside of home.

  • Located on a date stamp found inside the water tank of a bath toilet. ( This method can be used to estimate the year home was built )

SIZE OF HOME

A single-wide listed as a 18’ x 80’ ( i.e. Call Size ) may actually be 16’ x 77’, with a 3’ hitch assembly and 1’ roof eaves on either side.

  • You can measure the width and length of the structure along the exterior perimeter at the floor level ( i.e. Floor Size ).

  • Do not include the hitch or roof eaves in this measurement.

HUD CODE

The HUD Title 6 Construction Standards Regulation is a “Performance Code” effective on June 15, 1976. All manufactured homes built on or after the above date must be designed to comply with standards as evidenced by a red metal label located on the outside of each unit/floor. These standards are administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Washington DC, through a network of state agencies (SAA’s) and independent 3rd party professional engineering firms (PE’s).

This code supersedes all local and state building codes. A HUD coded manufactured home structure can be offered for sale in any state. The removal of its HUD label(s), wheels, axles or frame will not qualify the structure as a modular home or real property. The removal of its HUD label(s) or frame is illegal as per the HUD Title 6 Regulations.

HUD CONSTRUCTION CODE LABEL LOCATION

This metal certification label (red in color with silver lettering) is permanently attached to the rear exterior siding of each transportable section per HUD Title VI Regulations effective 6/15/76.

Missing Construction Code Label
HUD does not offer replacement labels from their offices. However, upon request from an interested party, the national monitoring contractor, Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS), will review their records and indicate that, at the time of manufacture the home was issued a HUD label number(s). The interested party has the option to use this information in any manner they wish. This applies to homes manufactured from June 15, 1976 and newer only.

The serial number for each floor section is required for request.

You may need the label for:

  • Loans

  • Sale

  • Insurance

  • Relocation

  • Appraisal

  • Utility Connections

  • Zoning Inspections

MODULAR CODE

Modular homes are built to a “Specification Code” administered by each state generally following the National Uniform Code (UBC). It is a dwelling unit fabricated in an off-site manufacturing facility for installation or assembly at the building site, bearing a label that is constructed in compliance with a state’s code.

MODULAR CODE LABEL LOCATION

Modular labels are sometimes attached under the kitchen sink.
Modular type units WILL NOT have the red HUD label attached on the rear exterior siding.  Some manufacturers will also use the HUD data plate form, but it will list the STATE’S MODULAR CODE in place of the DAPIA CODE.

SERIAL I.D. NUMBER LOCATION

I.D. Serial Numbers are cold stamped on the hitch or frame front cross member of each transportable section

HUD DATA PLATE LOCATION

Per 1976 HUD Regulation, this form is to be affixed inside the home on or near the main electrical breaker box and is printed on paper or foil stock 8 ½” x 11” to 8 ½” x 14” in size.  This document will verify the following:

  • Manufacturer’s Name
