First, the current owner must take the deed to the land and the mobile home title(s)/registration(s) to the Manatee County Property Appraiser’s office. An MH-402 form will be completed, which declares the mobile home to be Real Property. Once completed, you will need to bring the MH-402 form to a tax collector's office to purchase a real property (RP) decal, which is valid for as long as you own both the mobile home and the land.
Is the RP decal transferrable?
RP decals are permanent and transferable to a new owner when the land and mobile home are sold as a unit. The new owner(s) must notify the property appraiser of the change in ownership.
Is the RP decal replaceable?
Yes, and we strongly recommend it. Since the RP decal is only purchased one time, it will wear out over time. A replacement decal can be purchased at the tax collector's office for $5.10.
