A: Mobile Homes are owned by Certificate of Titles. You need the serial number off the home and the title, which is then transferred the same as a vehicle. If it says "and", then you might get a lawyer to draft/record an Affidavit of Heirship, which discloses to the world who the Next Of Kin is. Then the Next Of Kin and you transfer the Title over to the Sister. If you have no Certificate, you might order one through the County Clerk.
