Do I have to file a Change of Ownership Statement following the death of the owner if the manufactured home was held in the decedent's trust?
  • Yes. Whenever there is any change in ownership of real property or of a manufactured home, the transferee must file a Change in Ownership Statement in case of Death[PDF] with the county assessor in the county where the manufactured home is located. If the property is subject to probate proceedings, the Change in Ownership Statement in case of Death[PDF] must be filed prior to or at the time the inventory and appraisal is filed with the court clerk.

    In all other cases in which an interest in real property is transferred by reason of death, including a transfer through a medium of a trust, the Change in Ownership Statement in case of Death[PDF] must be filed with the county assessor by the trustee, if the property was held in trust, or the transferee within 150 days after the date of death.
