Texas Occupations Code

Sec. § 1201.459
Compliance Not Required for Sale for Collection of Delinquent Taxes


In selling a manufactured home to collect delinquent taxes, a tax assessor-collector is not required to comply with this subchapter or another provision of this chapter relating to the sale of a used manufactured home.


If a home does not have a serial number, seal, or label, the tax appraiser or tax assessor-collector may apply to the department for a seal if the tax appraiser or assessor-collector assumes full responsibility for the affixation of a seal to the home and the seal is actually affixed on the home.


A seal issued to a tax appraiser or tax assessor-collector is for identification purposes only and does not imply that:


the home is habitable; or


a purchaser of the home at a tax sale may obtain a new statement of ownership from the department without an inspection for habitability.
