In the News



SACRAMENTO - Register Your Mobilehome California, a new state program that provides waivers for past-due registration fees and taxes for mobilehomes and manufactured homes, has saved homeowners more than $500,000 in its first year of operation.

Besides the savings in fees and taxes, homeowners who have taken advantage of the program will also see additional benefits. They are now properly positioned to legally sell or transfer their property, apply for fire and flood insurance, and receive financial assistance and rebates from utility providers.
