Texas Occupations Code

Sec. § 1201.255
Installation of Manufactured Housing


Except as authorized under Section 1201.252 (Power of Local Governmental Unit to Adopt Different Standard), manufactured housing that is installed must be installed in compliance with the standards and rules adopted and orders issued by the department. An uninstalled manufactured home may not be occupied for any purpose other than to view the home on a retailer’s sales lot.


An installer may not install a used manufactured home at a location on a site that has evidence of ponding, runoff under heavy rains, or bare uncompacted soil unless the installer first obtains the owner’s signature on a form promulgated by the board disclosing that such conditions may contribute to problems with the stabilization system for that manufactured home, including possible damage to that home, and the owner accepts that risk.
