All residents must obtain a $75 mobile home permit before moving a mobile home onto a different piece of property in the unincorporated area of West Baton Rouge Parish. If the mobile home is moved before obtaining a permit the resident will be fined a double fee no more than $75. All mobile homes moved into the unincorporated areas of the Parish have to have a HUD manufacturing plate attached to the mobile home and the owner must provide proof of age, model, and wind zone.
Residents moving a new mobile home into The Town of Addis will need to obtain a permit from the Town of Addis. The resident must hire a State Licensed and registered with the Parish electrician to pull an electrical permit though the West Baton Rouge Permit Office. The resident will also need to provide the permit office with proof of utility deposits and a new account number obtained from Entergy. Once this process is complete and the mobile home checklist (see below) is complete the resident may request an inspection through the WBR Permit Office.
