We are making a loan to purchase a manufactured home that will be permanently located on the land. The title will be changed from the Dept of Housing (as titled collateral) to a real estate title with the land. The title company is charging a fee to remove the mobile home from the HCD records. Would this fee impact the APR as a prepaid finance charge? I'm thinking NO, because this fee would be charged in a cash transaction as well.

I would agree.

Well, maybe. Would you make the loan either way? As in, if they would choose to keep the mobile home as personal property it would have no impact on your loan one way or the other?
