Manufactured Housing Developer Dealer

"Developer Dealer"means a person who purchases state-certified manufactured housing from a licensed manufacturer or dealer for placement on property owned by the developer dealer and who offers the manufactured housing for sale to the initial purchaser of the manufactured housing. The developer dealer may not install such manufactured housing but may contract with the manufacturer or dealer for the installation of such manufactured housing.

Pursuant to 10 M.R.S.A. §9021(1-B), the Manufactured Housing Board is required to provide initial training in the servicing and installation of manufactured housing to all licensees and applicants for licensure beginning July 1, 2000. Therefore, in order to obtain a license, it is mandatory to attend initial training prior to a license being issued.
