In order to insure the residents of rural Idaho County, Idaho outside of the incorporated limits of the various cities, within said county with affordable, healthy, and safe housing, the Idaho County Commission does hereby adopt the following ordinance:

Section 1: (A) Pursuant to the provisions of Idaho Code §63-304 the Idaho County Commission shall approve by resolution or motion one (1) or more Idaho State certified building inspectors and/or Idaho State Licensed mobile home installers/service company representatives to assist with applications made to the Idaho County Assessor’s Office for persons wishing to convert manufactured homes or mobile homes to real estate.

Therefore, upon the receipt of an application by the Idaho County Assessor’s Office from someone desiring to convert their mobile home or manufactured home to real estate, the Idaho County Assessor’s Office shall deliver to said applicant a list of the approved and certified inspectors and/or approved licensed mobile home installers.

Thereafter, it 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 provisions which allow 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 chosen inspector shall complete a form furnished to him by the Idaho County Recorder’s Office, in which form the inspector will certify that the unit is in compliance with the provisions of Idaho law and can, thereafter, be considered as real estate by the County Assessor and Idaho County Recorder. The applicant shall have the responsibility of paying all costs of the inspector’s services and have the additional affirmative duty of delivering the completed form to the Idaho County Assessor’s Office, along with any other forms required by Idaho Code §63-304.

If, however, the inspector is not willing to certify that all requirements of law have been met, said inspector shall notify the applicant that the property is non-qualifying.

(B) If at the time a mobile home is being installed one of the approved inspectors and/or installer service company representatives certifies in writing that the installation complies with all provisions of Idaho law allowing the unit to become real estate, the property owner may then file the application with the Idaho County Assessor’s Office, and may proceed thereafter to complete the process contemplated by this ordinance.

Section 2: Approved inspectors shall be authorized by this ordinance to assess and collect their inspection costs, if any, in advance of performing inspections, if they choose that option.

Section 3: All ordinances or parts of ordinances in conflict herewith are hereby repealed.

Section 4: This ordinance shall become effective upon its passage, approval, and publication in the Idaho County Free Press.

This ordinance passed on the ___ day of ________________, 2006.
