Sec. 10. (a) This section does not apply to a mobile home that is offered for sale at auction
under IC 9-22-1.5, IC 9-22-1.7, or IC 6-1.1-23.5 for the transfer resulting from the auction.
(b) A mobile home may not be moved from one (1) location to another unless the owner
or the owner's agent obtains a permit to move the mobile home from the county treasurer.
(c) The bureau of motor vehicles may not:
(1) transfer the title to a mobile home; or
(2) change names in any manner on the title to a mobile home;
unless the owner or the owner's agent holds a valid permit to transfer the title that
was issued by the county treasurer and includes the county treasurer's embossed seal.
(d) A county treasurer shall issue a permit which is required to either move, or transfer
the title to, a mobile home if the taxes, special assessments, interest, penalties,
judgments, and costs that are due and payable on the mobile home have been paid and
the person requesting the permit has a state issued title, a court order, or a bureau
of motor vehicles affidavit of sale or disposal. The county treasurer shall issue the permit not later than two (2) business days
(excluding weekends and holidays) after the date the completed permit application
is received by the county treasurer. The permit shall state the date it is issued.
(e) After issuing a permit to move a mobile home under subsection (d), a county treasurer
shall notify the township assessor of the township to which the mobile home will be
moved, or the county assessor if there is no township assessor for the township, that
the permit to move the mobile home has been issued.
(f) A permit to move, or transfer title to, a mobile home that is issued under this
section expires ninety (90) days after the date the permit is issued. The permit is invalid after the permit expires. If the owner wishes to move, or transfer title to, the mobile home after the permit
has expired, the owner or the owner's agent must obtain a new permit under this section.
(g) A county treasurer is not liable for the county treasurer's good faith efforts
to collect taxes that are due and payable for a mobile home. Good faith efforts include the refusal to issue a permit under subsection (d) until
