Welcome to the LOIS Help Section - General Information

General Information

The division has designed a manufactured housing computer system nicknamed Lois, to track a home as it moves from a manufacturer to dealer to the owner ) and any resale). The system is deployed through a web-based application, thus eliminating most of the paperwork and delay from transactions for everyone involved.

  • Maintains siting and ownership information for manufactured structures sited in Oregon
  • For siting and ownership information on exempt homes, please contact the county deed records.
  • Generate official documents including the Ownership Document and Trip Permit

  • Limit access to authorized users and customize functionality based upon the specific user group
