OnTheLevel Contractors


Manufactured Home Specialists

OnTheLevel is a One-Stop-Shop for lenders, realtors, escrow, title officers, insurance companies and homeowners who are involved in a manufactured home loan, real estate transaction and need a 433A or Engineer’s Certification to meet HUD 1996 Permanent Foundation Guide For Manufactured Homes. Generally loan underwriting in California requires that a manufactured home have an approved “permanent foundation” called a 433A. We regularly work with the building departments and the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) to pull permits and procure the 433A document.
