Thereafter, is shall be the responsibility of the applicant to contact his choice of an approved inspector, to make an inspection as soon as possible of the installed unit to determine whether the provisions of Idaho code section 44 Chapter 22 have been complied with and whether the provision which allows manufactured housing or mobile homes to become real estate under the Idaho code have been complied with.
If the chosen inspector is satisfied that all of the provisions applying to installed mobile homes have been met, said inspector shall complete an affidavit form furnished to him by the Idaho County Recorder’s Office in which affidavit the inspector will certify under oath that the unit is in compliance with the provisions of the Idaho Code and can thereafter be treated as real estate by the County Assessor and County Recorder. The applicant shall have the responsibility of paying all costs of the inspector services and have the additional affirmative duty of delivering the completed affidavit to the Idaho County Assessor’s Office.
If, however, the inspectors all willing to certify that all requirements of law have been met, he shall notify the applicant generally what construction details need to be completed so that installation might qualify as real estate in the future.
