What is the Mobile Home Park Registration Service?

What is done with the information I submit?

All information you submit through the Mobile Home Park Registration Service is used for the following purposes:

  • To identify you and your mobile home park
  • To process your annual registration with the department
  • For periodic reports to the Legislature that are required by law
  • For statistical purposes, i.e. median lot rents, vacancy rates, etc

We use this information solely for the above purposes. For further information about the security and privacy of using this application, please refer to the Vermont.gov Privacy Policy and the Vermont.gov Security Policy.

Where can I find my Mobile Home Park ID Number or Zip Code?

Your Mobile Home Park ID Number is located on the upper left of the paper registration form that you may have received. If you did not receive a paper registration form, you can have your ID Number and Zip Code emailed to you by using the Forgotten ID Number Form.

The Zip Code you use to identify your Mobile Home Park is the zip code where the park is physically located, not the owner's mailing address zip code.

Does my submission immediately change the Mobile Home Park Registry?

What if I do not know the information for a section?

Why isn't the total number of lots changing when I enter my lot counts?

If you cannot enable javascript in your browser, you do not need to in order to proceed. The system will do the calculation for you when you submit your lot count information.

Why is there an error saying that the sum of my mobile homes exceeds the number of lots?

The error appears if the sum of the Leaseholder Owned, Owner Owned, and Other Owned mobile homes exceeds the number of lots entered in the number of lots fields. Essentially, you entered more mobile homes in the ownership fields than there are in the park.

Why does a table of rents appear when I say I have other lot rents?

How is the fee calculated?

The total amount owed is calculated as the total number of leased, occupied lots multipled by the annually set per lot fee. What this means is that the fee is what you enter as the total number of leased lots plus the total number of other habitable lots multiplied by the per lot fee.
