You must first obtain a permit to install or replace a manufactured home. Please refer to the Requirements for Manufactured Houses for a detailed list of what you will need to apply for the permit.
The dealer is normally responsible for the installation of the
manufactured home as stated in the sales contract. Some dealers use
their own personnel while others use contractors. If you buy your home
through a private sales transaction, you will have to coordinate with a
contractor. Confirm that your contractor and subcontractors are properly licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
