Manufactured Home Parks

mobile homes

Effective December 1, 2012, all manufactured home parks will be licensed and regulated by the Ohio Manufactured Home Commission (OMHC) pursuant to the passage of House Bill #487. Joint efforts and preparation have been underway for several years to transfer this jurisdiction from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) to the Ohio Manufactured Home Commission.

Please remember that all homes must be installed by an installer licensed by OMHC and be inspected for compliance by an OMHC inspection agency. Manufactured homes that are installed outside of a manufactured home park are required to contact the Ohio Manufactured Home Commission for inspection. For more information on manufactured homes, please visit the OMHC website at the link below.

The Defiance County General Health District will continue to provide manufactured home park inspections under the oversight of the Ohio Manufactured Home Commission.
