For many years, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH) conducted a state-mandated Manufactured Home Park Program. As of December 1, 2012, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health no longer licenses or conducts inspections of manufactured home parks in our health jurisdiction.  Manufactured Home Parks are now regulated by the Ohio Department of Commerce. The Ohio Manufactured Homes Program officially became part of the Department of Commerce on January 21, 2018, as a result of House Bill 49, the Ohio Operating Budget. A provision in HB 49 transitioned the Ohio Manufactured Homes Commission (OMHC) to the Ohio Department of Commerce. Prior to this, the OMHC had jurisdiction over the installation of manufactured homes, the licensing and regulation of manufactured home communities, the licensing of installers, dealers, brokers and salespersons, and the certification of inspectors.

Today, responsibility for the Manufactured Homes Program falls under both the Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing (REPL) and the Division of Industrial Compliance (DIC).

DIC oversees:

  • Installations
  • Inspections
  • Park Licenses
  • Investigations
  • Dispute Resolution


REPL oversees:

  • Brokers/Dealers
  • Salespersons
  • Compliance/ Investigations
  • Dispute Resolution

 

The Cuyahoga County Board of Health responds to complaints regarding nuisance conditions within a park. All other issues regarding licensing, inspection and installation are under the authority of the Ohio Department of Commerce.  Program requirements can be viewed in Ohio Revised Code Chapter 4781.

Additional program information is also available at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development – Manufactured Housing Program.
