    If you hear about new installation standards from HUD---here’s what’s going on.


    HUD has directed South Carolina to adopt new installation standards for manufactured homes when there is no manual   This will be months and months away.   MHISC will be analyzing the set-up standards to be sure there are no problems.  We’ll be providing you details well in advance. 

    If you'd like a sneak peek, the plan now is to go with two sections from the federal HUD regulations:  24 CFR 3285 - 3286.

    Retailers and Contractors: Here's How to Avoid a Fine When You Sub Out Work

    Retailers and Contractors: Here's How to Avoid a Fine When You Sub Out Work


    The SC Manufactured Housing Board has been fining dealers and contractors who sub out set-up and repair work. 

    People who do installation or repair work for retailers must either: a) be a W-2 employee, or b) have their own license from the SC Manufactured Housing Board.

    A retailer can do repair or set-up on homes they sell without getting a separate installer or repairer license from the state agency.  But the SCMHB says the dealer can’t sub the work out unless the person doing the set-up has an installer or contractor license.  At recent hearing the board said the contractor’s license should be from the SCMHB, not a license issued by another agency such as the Residential Builders or Contractor’s Licensing Board. 

    The agency has also fined licensed contractors who subbed work out to another crew not under a licensed contractor. What matters to the licensing board is not whose name is on the paperwork but who is actually doing the work.
