The Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC) does not have legal authority over contractual, monetary, or warranty issues nor does the bureau have authority to conduct criminal prosecution.
The Mobile Home program reviews and investigates complaints against mobile home parks and dealers. Examples of such complaints may be negligence resulting in physical harm to a consumer, performing work without a permit or proper licensure, and fraud or deceit in the performance of work. See HUD – Administered Manufactured Home Installation Program below for complaint information regarding installers and manufacturers.
NOTE: Filing a complaint with BCC is not the only option. Complainants may opt for an informal resolution between them and the contractor, formally through the courts, or by other agencies. If a complaint has been filed with BCC and resolution is sought through the legal system, please advise our office immediately.
Note: The Bureau does not title mobile homes. For information regarding Certificates of Mobile Home Ownership (titles), contact your local branch of the Office of the Secretary of State or call 1-888-767-6424.

Originals will not be returned. Additional information will be requested if needed. Keep copies of all documents sent to the bureau.
Most complaints will be handled in the order they were received.

Final determinations are based on facts, so we are unable to provide a timeframe for the length of the investigation. In general, the process is as follows:

The Bureau's construction code plan review program will review the documents for compliance with applicable rules, and once approved, issue a plan approval and permit to construct. The plan approval and permit to construct is valid for 5 years after the date of issuance and may be extended upon application. An extension may be issued for a maximum of 10 years beyond the initial date of approval. The same approval process is applicable to mobile home condominium and conversion of existing park to home condominium. The Manufactured Housing Commission may extend the plan approval and permit to construct and grant a variance to the park design and construction rules upon request.
