WE ONLY INSPECT
MOBILE & MANUFACTURED HOMES!
About Our Business
It was a cool and rainy winter day in Southern California, in
1987 when Greg Filian started Mobile Home Inspectors. A
contracting client said "If I only would have known I
needed a new roof when I bought the mobile home, I
would not have gone on vacation". Mobile Home
Inspectors was born then.
This client was taken advantage of by an dishonest mobile
home sales agent who told her the roof "was in fine
Greg studied the market and found there were no home
inspectors specializing in mobile or manufactured homes.
Of course there are those contractors who do inspections
with the intention of getting the repair business, but
according to the California Civil Code "it is unlawful to
refer, complete, or otherwise be a party to repairs that are
found in an inspection".
Over the years Mobile Home Inspectors has grown to
become the only recognized name, for comprehensive
mobile home inspections. Yes really! While the most
recent failing housing market has caused a number of
conventional home inspectors to try mobile home
inspections, we are still the only competent specialized
mobile home inspection company.
At MHI we've seen mobile home sales agents come and
go. The ones that have stayed in the industry have
realized that pre-sale inspections are a must in order to
conform to the California Health and Safety Code.
We've also seen yearly changes in the Department of
Housing and Community Development, Title 25, (guide
book for mobile home codes). It is true that many mobile
home sales agents, mobile home contractors, and even
park managers are not aware of some of these
guidelines. At MHI we keep up with these changes
In addition to HCD Title 25 codes and standards, MHI
keeps up with other information sources and trainings
offered to our industry.
All the latest on site computer and printing technology is
used to complete the inspection and deliver it at the end
of the inspection. Digital photography is also used.
At Mobile Home Inspectors, "Were on your side"!
