Manufactured or Mobile Homes
British Columbia is the only jurisdiction in Canada that protects a person's investment in a manufactured home by having a central register of ownership details and controlling the movement of homes within B.C.
Under the Manufactured Home Act (previously the Mobile Home Act), no sale, transfer or purchase of a manufactured home in B.C. is effective unless the transaction is registered with the Manufactured Home Registry. The registry protects a person's investment in a manufactured home by:
- Maintaining a central register of manufactured home ownership details
- Controlling the movement of manufactured homes in B.C.
- Improving the security of lenders in financing purchases of manufactured homes
