Manufactured Home Parks

mobile homes

The Department of Commerce is now the state agency that provides oversight of Ohio’s
manufactured homes program. House Bill 49, the Ohio Operating Budget, included a
provision to move the duties of the Manufactured Homes Commission to the Department of
Commerce. The Department assumed these responsibilities on Jan. 21, 2018. Two of the
department’s divisions – Real Estate & Professional Licensing and Industrial Compliance –
will share responsibility for ensuring the proper licensing of those who sell, install and inspect
manufactured housing, and the communities in which they operate, as well as the safety of
the residents who live there.

The Defiance County General Health District will continue to provide manufactured home park inspections under the oversight of the Ohio Department of Commerce
