Manufactured Home Installer – Licensure by Reciprocity



When to Apply

If you hold a current license or certificate as a manufactured home installer in another jurisdiction (state, U.S. territory, District of Columbia), follow these instructions to apply for a license as a Manufactured Home Installer by reciprocity. If you do not hold a current license or certificate, see Manufactured Home Installer – Original Licensure.


Information on How to Apply for a License in DELPROS

Applications are processed in DELPROS (Delaware Professional Regulation Online Services). The online license application process is simple and provides you with clear instructions throughout each stage of the application process. We strongly recommend that you understand what the requirements are for the license you are pursuing. Then, request and gather the documents you need before you begin the application process. Most of the information and forms are on this website. For further clarification of requirements, refer to your profession’s License Law and the Rules and Regulations.

In order to apply for a license or service request, you must have a DELPROS account. To create a new account or log into an existing DELPROS account, follow the instructions at the beginning of the application process. As part of the final steps of the application process, DELPROS instructs you to either “attach” or “upload” the required documents directly to your application and/or to “acknowledge” that you will either send them in yourself or make arrangements for “third-party” documents/forms to be sent to the Board office. Examples of “third-party forms” are transcripts from schools, employment verifications from a supervisor, and license verifications from another state. Official license verifications and/or transcripts are acceptable when received electronically directly from the State Board or school/institution. Note that forms requiring a signature, seal, or notary must be MAILED to the Board office directly UNLESS the document specifically indicates to UPLOAD the document. All documents received by mail are scanned and attached to the appropriate license records.

In DELPROS, you have the ability to save your application and return to it to edit/update information or upload documents for up to six months. However, if you do not submit your application within six months, you will have to restart your online application process. The Board office begins processing applications shortly after submission in the portal. You may check the status of your application in the DELPROS system throughout the whole process and we will correspond with you by email. The requirements for this license type are provided in the following section(s).


Requirements

In addition to submitting the application and fee in DELPROS, you must submit:

  • A copy of your birth certificate, passport, an identification card issued by the State of Delaware or driver’s license issued by the State of Delaware to prove that you are at least 18 years old.
  • If your name is different on any submitted documents, provide a copy of a legal document showing your name change.
  • Proof that you or your employer hold a surety bond or irrevocable letter of credit for at least $10,000. This must be sent directly to the Board office from the bond company.
    • Your name must be shown on the bond or letter.
    • If a letter of credit is submitted, it must be issued by a federally-insured financial institution.
    • If a bond is submitted, the Division of Professional Regulation must be listed as the bond holder.
  • Proof of liability insurance in the amount of at least $100,000 from the insurance company. Your name must be listed on the liability insurance documentation.
  • State/Jurisdiction Licensure Verification(s) sent directly to the Board office from each state or jurisdiction in which you currently hold or have ever held a license.


Reporting Requirements

The person or entity who maintain the surety bond or irrevocable letter of credit or who maintains the liability insurance is responsible for all acts or omissions of the licensed installer and also those supervised by the installer or assisting the installer in the installation of manufactured housing.

As a licensed installer, you must notify the Board in writing, within seven days if any of the following occurs:

  • The surety bond or irrevocable letter of credit changes or is cancelled.
  • The liability insurance changes or is cancelled.

In addition, the employer must notify the Board if he/she terminates the employment of any licensee who is covered by the employer’s liability insurance or by the employer’s surety bond or irrevocable letter of credit.
