§ 149.6. Certificate of Compliance.
(a) Upon completion of the installation of a manufactured home, an installer shall complete a Certificate of Compliance. A Certificate of Compliance may only reference items that are addressed in § 149.3 or § 149.3a (relating to installation standard for new manufactured homes; and installation and construction standards for relocated manufactured homes), as applicable.
(b) Within 5 calendar days of completion of the installation of a manufactured home, the installer of the manufactured home shall forward the completed Certificate of Compliance to the Department and the appropriate building code official. The duty to certify to the Department does not apply to relocated manufactured homes.
(c) A building code official may not issue a certificate of occupancy for a manufactured home until he has received a completed copy of the Certificate of Compliance.
(d) The installer of a manufactured home shall attach the original completed Certificate of Compliance to the installation instructions or other documents that must remain with the home or hand deliver the Certificate of Compliance and the installation instructions to the purchaser.
(e) If the manufacturer or retailer has not agreed in writing to be responsible to the purchaser for the installation of the new manufactured home prior to the execution of the sales documents, the manufacturer or retailer shall provide the purchaser with a written statement that the home shall be installed as described in § 149.3(b) and (c), and that the Certificate of Compliance shall be completed and signed by an installer certified under § 149.4(b) (relating to installer training and certification). At that same time, the manufacturer or retailer shall provide the purchaser with a list of installers known to him or obtained from the Department. By providing the list, the manufacturer or retailer does not warrant the quality of the installers work, nor is the purchaser under any obligation to use any particular installer.
