Safety and Manufactured Homes - Pilot Project: Resources for Sellers and Buyers
Last updated: June 28, 2021
Between June 28 and October 25, 2021, a pilot project is underway in the Powell River Sunshine Coast Real Estate Board area regarding manufactured homes and electrical safety.
Normally, before a manufactured home can be listed for sale, a valid electrical safety certification or approval label or mark has to be in place. During the pilot project, sellers of manufactured homes in this area have the option of applying to Technical Safety BC for a variance that will allow them to list their homes before obtaining electrical safety approval. The approval will still need to be in place before a manufactured home can be sold, but the repairs and inspections can be done while the home is listed for sale.
This project is the collective effort of the British Columbia Real Estate Association, Powell River Sunshine Coast Real Estate Board and Technical Safety BC.
We urge sellers and buyers to carefully review the following materials and to work closely with your REALTORS® if you decide to participate.
- Information overview for consumers
- Clauses to include in a Contract of Purchase and Sale
- Technical Safety BC (TSBC) variance application form
- TSBC consumer checklist
