A manufactured home (MH) means a movable or transportable housing structure or building that is more than 32 feet in length or over eight feet in width and is designed to be hauled or towed on its chassis or framework. This type of residence is intended to be installed with or without an external foundation, and it may consist of a single unit; one or more components that can be compressed for towing and then expanded for different or greater amplitudes; or two or more parts that can be towed individually before being joined to form a single fundamental unit.
The term manufactured home excludes recreational vehicles and modular or pre-made homes built following the standards of the Uniform Building Code and, therefore, meant to be permanently attached to real estate. A manufactured home does include any mobile or portable housing construction exceeding twelve feet in wide and forty feet long used for non-residential purposes.
A New Mexico Manufactured Housing License qualifies or entitles its holder to sell or import for sale in the determined State, as well as to carry out the corresponding duties of the desired MH-related trade. New Mexico has pre-established different licenses whose primary scope of work fall under the manufactured housing category, these are: Broker, Dealer, Inspector, Installer (type 1, 2, 3, and 3 - Electrical Endorsement), Salesperson, and Yardline Endorsement. No individual should perform tasks associated to such activities without a valid license, as stipulated by the Manufactured Housing Act (60-14-7).
