Help! HUD # / Year of mobile home/title question
Hi - I'm currently looking into purchasing an older model double wide mobile home - however, the current owner cannot locate the "title".
To further complicate issues -
he has never lived in it -
he purchased it from a woman - who never lived in it -
and she purchased it from someone else and had it moved to Florida. So I have no idea who the title is registered to.
I told the current owner that I won't purchase this mobile home without a title - he's trying to locate the woman who sold it to him to obtain the title.
My question is - I have the HUD# from the two halves of the mobile home (it is a doublewide - ready to move - covered in plastic). I'm guessing it's probably an 80's model. How can I find out "at least" the year of the home with the HUD# - until he can obtain the true/actual title?
It's a fair price for the home and it's current condition.
Thanks in advance.
