How can I replace a missing HUD tag (HUD Certification Label) for a mobile/manufactured home?
Monday, October 22, 2018
If the red metal tag is missing, that can be a big problem. The HUD tag is often required for an appraisal, mortgage application, and sometimes even a building permit. Replacement metal HUD tags are not available, but you can get a “HUD Label Verification Letter” from IBTS (Institute for Building Technology and Safety). See our blog post What is a "HUD label verification letter" for a mobile/manufactured home? for details. And, of course, it’s not free.
The HUD tag should be located on the long wall of each section of a mobile home near one end and low on the wall. If you want to double-check to make sure you didn’t miss it, see our blog post What does the HUD tag look like and where do I find it on a mobile home?
