Factory-Built Homes/Modular Homes | Print |
Overview

If you are within the zoned area, you will need to check with Lamar County Planning Department first to ensure proper approval for siting a location has been obtained prior to applying with the State Fire Marshal's Office. If you are inside or outside of the zoned area you will need to obtain an Address and Flood Permit in order to be able to apply with the State Fire Marshal's Office.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office licenses manufacturers, dealers, and installers/transporters of factory-built homes in Mississippi. The State Fire Marshal’s Office also monitors proper anchoring and blocking of factory-built homes, and enforces federal standards governing proper construction practices. Currently, the office receives about 500 complaints each year, and maintains a caseload of approximately 300 active complaints.
