9-20-15-4. "Individual Owner"; General Permits; Special Permits
Sec. 4. (a) As used in this section, "individual owner" means the owner of a mobile home or sectionalized building who bought the mobile home or sectionalized building for the owner's personal or business use and not for immediate resale.
(b) The Indiana department of transportation shall grant permits to operate special tractor-mobile home rigs of two (2) general classes as follows:
(1) General permits, for the operation of a special tractor-mobile home rig by a person, except an individual owner, in the ordinary course of the person's business.
(2) Special permits, for the operation of a special tractor-mobile home rig for an individual owner for the express purpose of moving mobile homes or sectionalized buildings by a qualified mover.
(c) General permits shall be issued annually. One (1) permit shall be issued for each towing vehicle to be used as a component of a special tractor-mobile home rig. The holder of a general permit may make, during the period of the permit, any number of mobile home or sectionalized building movements with the towing vehicle component of the special tractor-mobile home rig for which the permit was granted. However, the Indiana department of transportation may adopt rules requiring the obtaining of a movement authorization for each movement.
(d) A special permit is limited to the particular movement of the mobile home or sectionalized building for which the special permit is issued. A person purchasing a mobile home or sectionalized building, but who does not have a legal title to the mobile home or sectionalized building, is considered the owner of the mobile home or sectionalized building for the purposes of this chapter if the person has a contract with the seller or the seller's assignee. However, the person shall present to the granting authority a statement by the holder of the legal title to the mobile home or sectionalized building granting permission for the movement of the mobile home or sectionalized building.
