Manufactured Housing Creditors

Manufactured Housing Creditors

Manufactured housing creditors that do not hold a Chapter 342 Regulated Loan License with our agency are required to obtain a registration and an NMLS license if they extend or arrange (broker) a credit transaction with a consumer to include a purchase money lien on the manufactured home. To require a registration, these loans also must be subject to a finance charge or payable in four or more installments.

This chapter does not apply to a manufactured home credit transaction that is entered into primarily for commercial or business purposes.

If you are paying the late filing fee of $250 for not registering before you began acting as a creditor, you will also need to pay the renewal fee for each year your business  provided financing without being registered.

Effective September 1, 2015, all applications for a new license or registration must be submitted through the online system "ALECS" (Application, Licensing, Examination, Compliance System). Any paper application received that is postmarked September 1, 2015 or later will be returned to the applicant with instructions for re-filing.
