The provisions of the Business & Commerce Code relating to the storage of goods for hire apply to a licensed retailer acting as a warehouse.


A licensed retailer acting as a warehouse and warehouseman satisfies all storage, bonding, insurance, public sale, and security requirements if the storage of a manufactured home occurs on the retailer’s lot and the home is secured in the same manner the retailer secures a manufactured home held on the lot as inventory.


In accordance with the provisions of Section 7.210 (Enforcement of Warehouse’s Lien), Business & Commerce Code, a licensed retailer acting as a warehouse to enforce a warehouse’s lien is considered to have sold a manufactured home in a commercially reasonable manner if the retailer sells the manufactured home in the same manner the retailer would sell a manufactured home at retail.
