Modular Home Law and Legal Definition
Modular homes are homes that are built in sections in a factory and then transported to a building site on truck beds, then joined together by local contractors. Modular homes are built to conform to all state, local or regional building codes at their destinations. Local building inspectors ar responsible for verifying that a modular home's structure meets requirements and that all finish work is done properly. Modular homes are sometimes less expensive per square foot than site built houses, but may endure and increase in value if properly constructed.
