in a hospital, skilled nursing facility, or intermediate care facility for persons with
developmental disabilities;

(2) home care is appropriate; and

(3) the improvement will enable the borrower or a member of the borrower's family to
reside in the housing.

The agency may waive any requirement that the housing units in a residential housing
development be rented to persons of low and moderate income if the development consists

new text begin (1) the manufactured home is to be affixed or is affixed, as defined in section 273.125,
subdivision 8, paragraph (b), to the real property;

new text begin Surrender of certificate of title. new text end

new text begin (a) The owner of the manufactured home
may surrender the manufacturer's certificate of title to the commissioner for cancellation.

to the owner of the manufactured home. In the event the certificate of title is lost, stolen,
mutilated, destroyed, or becomes illegible, the owner may submit a written request for
cancellation of the title which includes the serial number of the manufactured home and
states that the certificate of title is lost, stolen, mutilated, destroyed, or has become illegible.
Upon receipt of the request and verification of ownership in Driver and Vehicle Services
Division records, the commissioner must issue notice of cancellation to the owner of the
manufactured home and must not require the owner to deliver the certificate of title or obtain
a duplicate certificate of title. After canceling a certificate of title, the commissioner must
not allow transfer of the title to the manufactured home as personal property. The

secured party must release or satisfy the security interest prior to cancellation of the certificate
of title by the commissioner. Affixing the manufactured home to real property or recording

Subd. 8.

Manufactured homes; sectional structures.

(a) In this section, "manufactured
home" means a structure transportable in one or more sections, which is built on a permanent
chassis, and designed to be used as a dwelling with or without a permanent foundation when
connected to the required utilities, and contains the plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and
electrical systems in it. Manufactured home includes any accessory structure that is an
addition or supplement to the manufactured home and, when installed, becomes a part of
the manufactured home.

(b) Except as provided in paragraph (c), a manufactured home that meets each of the
following criteria must be valued and assessed as an improvement to real property, the
appropriate real property classification applies, and the valuation is subject to review and
the taxes payable in the manner provided for real property:

(1) the deleted text beginowner of the unit holdsdeleted text end title to the land on which it is situatednew text begin is held by: (i) the
owner of the unit; or (ii) a Minnesota nonprofit corporation or a Minnesota cooperative to
which the owner is a member
new text end;

(2) the unit is affixed to the land by a permanent foundation or is installed at its location
in accordance with the Manufactured Home Building Code in sections 327.31 to 327.34,
and rules adopted under those sections, or is affixed to the land like other real property in
the taxing district; and

(3) the unit is connected to public utilities, has a well and septic tank system, or is serviced
by water and sewer facilities comparable to other real property in the taxing district.

(c) A manufactured home that meets each of the following criteria must be assessed at
the rate provided by the appropriate real property classification but must be treated as
personal property, and the valuation is subject to review and the taxes payable in the manner
provided in this section:

(1) the owner of the unit is a lessee of the land under the terms of a lease, or the unit is
located in a manufactured home park but is not the homestead of the park owner;

(2) the unit is affixed to the land by a permanent foundation or is installed at its location
in accordance with the Manufactured Home Building Code contained in sections 327.31 to
327.34, and the rules adopted under those sections, or is affixed to the land like other real
property in the taxing district; and

(3) the unit is connected to public utilities, has a well and septic tank system, or is serviced
by water and sewer facilities comparable to other real property in the taxing district.

(d) Sectional structures must be valued and assessed as an improvement to real property
if the owner of the structure holds title to the land on which it is located or is a qualifying
lessee of the land under section 273.19. In this paragraph "sectional structure" means a
building or structural unit that has been in whole or substantial part manufactured or
constructed at an off-site location to be wholly or partially assembled on site alone or with
other units and attached to a permanent foundation.

(e) The commissioner of revenue may adopt rules under the Administrative Procedure
Act to establish additional criteria for the classification of manufactured homes and sectional
structures under this subdivision.

(f) A storage shed, deck, or similar improvement constructed on property that is leased
or rented as a site for a manufactured home, sectional structure, park trailer, or travel trailer
is taxable as provided in this section. In the case of property that is leased or rented as a site
for a travel trailer, a storage shed, deck, or similar improvement on the site that is considered
personal property under this paragraph is taxable only if its total estimated market value is
over $10,000. The property is taxable as personal property to the lessee of the site if it is
not owned by the owner of the site. The property is taxable as real estate if it is owned by
the owner of the site. As a condition of permitting the owner of the manufactured home,
sectional structure, park trailer, or travel trailer to construct improvements on the leased or
rented site, the owner of the site must obtain the permanent home address of the lessee or
user of the site. The site owner must provide the name and address to the assessor upon
request.

Subdivision 1.

Certificates surrendered for cancellation.

(a) When a manufactured home is to be affixed or is affixed, as defined in section 273.125, subdivision 8, paragraph (b), to real property, the owner of the manufactured home may surrender the manufacturer's certificate of origin or certificate of title to the department for cancellation so that the manufactured home becomes an improvement to real property and is no longer titled as personal property. The department must not issue a certificate of title for a manufactured home under chapter 168A if the manufacturer's certificate of origin is or has been surrendered under this subdivision, except as provided in section 168A.142. Upon surrender of the manufacturer's certificate of origin or the certificate of title, the department must issue notice of surrender to the owner, and upon recording an affidavit of affixation, which the county recorder or registrar of titles, as applicable, must accept, the manufactured home is deemed to be an improvement to real property. An affidavit of affixation by the owner of the manufactured home must include the following information:

(1) the name, residence address, and mailing address of owner or owners of the manufactured home;

(2) the legal description of the real property in which the manufactured home is, or will be, located;

(3) a copy of the surrendered manufacturer's certificate of origin or certificate of title and the notice of surrender;

(4) a written statement from the county auditor or county treasurer of the county where the manufactured home is located stating that all property taxes payable in the current year, as provided under section 273.125, subdivision 8, paragraph (b), have been paid, or are not applicable;

(5) the name and address of the person designated by the applicant to record the original affidavit of affixation with the county recorder or registrar of titles for the county where the real property is located; and

(6) the signature of the person who executes the affidavit, properly executed before a person authorized to authenticate an affidavit in this state.

(b) The person designated in paragraph (a), clause (5), must record, or arrange for the recording of, the affidavit of affixation, accompanied by the fees for recording and for issuing a certified copy of the notice, including all attachments, showing the recording date. Upon obtaining the certified copy of the notice under this paragraph, the person designated in the affidavit must deliver the certified copy to the county auditor of the county in which the real property to which the manufactured home was affixed is located.

(c) The department is not liable for any errors, omissions, misstatements, or other deficiencies or inaccuracies in documents presented to the department under this section, if the documents presented appear to satisfy the requirements of this section. The department has no obligation to investigate the accuracy of statements contained in the documents.

Subd. 2.

Perfected security interest prevents surrender.

The department may not cancel a certificate of title if, under this chapter, a security interest has been perfected on the manufactured home. If a security interest has been perfected, the department must notify the owner that each secured party must release or satisfy the security interest prior to proceeding with surrender of the manufacturer's certificate of origin or certificate of title to the department for cancellation. Permanent attachment to real property or the recording of an affidavit of affixation does not extinguish an otherwise valid security interest in or tax lien on the manufactured home, unless the requirements of section 168A.141, subdivisions 1, 1a, and 2, including the release of any security interest, have been satisfied.

Subd. 3.

Notice of security interest.

When a perfected security interest exists, or will exist, on the manufactured home at the time the manufactured home is affixed to real property, and the owner has not satisfied the requirements of section 168A.141, subdivision 1, the owner of the manufactured home, or its secured party, may record a notice with the county recorder, or with the registrar of titles, if the land is registered, stating that the manufactured home located on the property is encumbered by a perfected security interest and is not an improvement to real property. The notice must state the name and address of the secured party as set forth on the certificate of title, the legal description of the real property, and the name and address of the record fee owner of the real property on which the manufactured home is affixed. When the security interest is released or satisfied, the secured party must attach a copy of the release or satisfaction to a notice executed by the secured party containing the county recorder or registrar of titles document number of the notice of security interest. The notice of release or satisfaction must be recorded with the county recorder, or registrar of titles, if the land is registered. Neither the notice described in this subdivision nor the security interest on the certificate of title is deemed to be an encumbrance on the real property. The notices provided for in this subdivision need not be acknowledged.
