The Nevada Legislature has mandated that the Nevada Housing Division - Manufactured Housing ensure structures manufactured off site or in a manufacturing plant are constructed, transported, installed and repaired in a manner that provides a reasonable degree of safety and protection to the public. Chapters 489 and 461 of the Nevada Revised Statutes provide such authority.
To insure compliance with the statute, the Division has adopted codes and standards to govern the construction, installation and repair of these structures. The Division requires permits and inspections to ensure quality of workmanship, safety and compliance through adopted regulations. Below is a list of project categories that require a permit. We have included the installation and repairs relating to safety for items such as; structural changes, electrical and plumbing repairs, roof replacement and other repairs and alterations that could affect the health and safety of the occupants. Permits, when required, must be issued by the Division before work can begin.
To purchase a permit you will need to complete an "Online Permit Application". If you are a licensed service-person with the Nevada Housing Division, Manufactured Housing, you can now register and/or apply online. This new feature is the easiest and quickest way to obtain your permit. You will be required to pay online for your permit at the time of application by Credit Card Visa or MasterCard. If you are an Owner/Builder you must apply directly to the Division using the forms listed to the right under the permits section and provide appropriate documentation. You can then submit your request with all documents to email@example.com. If you are a licensed service-person and do not wish to use the online portal you may also apply directly to the division at the email listed above.
When your project is ready for inspection, you must log back into the online permit application portal and request your inspection. The time it takes to complete an inspection from the date the inspection request is received may vary based on the location of the inspection and the staffing levels of the Division. The typical response time for an inspection is usually within 2-3 days and many are completed in as little as 1 day.
If you are an Owner/Builder or did not use the online permit portal please complete the appropriate "Inspection Request Form" attach and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manufactured Housing has a plan review process to ensure your project starts out efficiently and as cost effectively as possible. Some projects require the submission of plans or a written scope of work before a permit can be issued. Those projects requiring a plan review prior to commencing are also listed below.
