Data Plate Search Requests
The Manufactured Housing Section maintains records of HUD-Code manufactured homes produced in Georgia from 1977 to the present. In the event that the original Data Plate located within these homes has become defaced or has been destroyed, replacement copies may be available to owners, financial institutions or other governmental agencies requiring this construction information. Please be advised that long-term storage is not always kind to these documents, and more primitive earlier technology was less than durable. For example, older documents were carbon copies of handwritten data, and these have simply vanished over time.
All our legible records have been digitally scanned and converted to pdf format. When located, they can be attached to e-mails and sent to the requestor. No paper copies will be created or processed.
