|If you are purchasing a mobile home, or you are acting on behalf of someone purchasing a mobile home, in order to transfer ownership, you must request a tax clearance certificate using this form. Your request will be forwarded to a property tax service representative for processing.
To avoid delays, please fill in the form as completely and accurately as possible. There is no charge for the initial tax clearance certificate.
If there is a tax liability and you are not the escrow or title officer clearing this mobile home for sale, you will be contacted on the amount of the tax liability that needs to be paid prior to the issuance of the certificate. This tax liability may include an estimate of the current year taxes if the current year taxes have not yet been enrolled. All tax liabilities must be paid prior to receiving a tax clearance certificate.
Until a tax clearance certificate is issued by the County, the owner on record with the County is liable for property taxes on the mobile home, just like an automobile or an aircraft.
We recommend that the owner selling the mobile home should always request a mobile home tax clearance certificate to ensure property tax liability is transferred.
If you are requesting a subsequent tax clearance certificate to replace one that has expired prior to title transfer, the fee is $10.00. Your request will not be processed until funds are received. Please make checks payable to the "County of Orange" and mail the check and the completed form to:
County of Orange
