Does anyone know when this HUD requirement became affective.?
I did find this in the Inachi articles, but does not say anything about when tie-downs became a requirement.
The term “manufactured home” was adopted in 1980 by the the U.S. Congress to describe a type of house that is constructed in a factory to comply with a building code developed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In the past, manufactured homes were called “mobile homes,” a term that many people still use. However, “mobile” is no longer an accurate name because fewer than 5% of such homes are ever moved off the owner’s original site.
Inspected one last weekend and just made note that no tie downs had been provided.
