Mobile Home Take Down Program
Each year the county is allotted a certain amount of money which is dedicated to the removal of
dilapidated mobile homes that are no longer being used as a residence. These mobile homes can
pose a health and safety concern as well as create an eyesore for surrounding citizens. For those
who qualify under a medical and/or financial hardship, the removal process is completed at no
cost to the owner. Due to the limited amount of money, it is encouraged that you contact our
office if you would like our assistance or need more information.
Guidelines for removal of dilapidated mobile homes:
- Qualifying persons must either have a financial and/or medical hardship
- Owner must be the one to request the mobile home be taken down
- Owner must sign a release to Johnston County that allows the contract company
to do the demolition and removal.
- If the mobile home owner and landowner differ, the landowner must also sign a
release allowing the contractor to enter their property for the purpose of the mobile home removal.
- The owner agrees to remove all furniture prior to demolition date.
- The owner of the mobile home or landowner on which the mobile home resides
agrees to disconnect the home from electricity, water, and sewer prior to the
- The owner of the mobile home is responsible for making sure that all taxes on
the mobile home are paid before demolition can take place. If taxes are still
owed, the County needs to be aware of what is owed so that other arrangements
can be made.
