Q: What does the age of a mobile home have to before set up in Warren County?
A: At this time there is not an age limit.

Q: What are the setbacks of a home?
A: 10 foot on the side, 30 foot on the front, and 25 foot on the back. For more information regarding the zoning and planning for Warren County please feel free to call our office at 252-257-7027

Q: How far in advance does an inspection need to be scheduled?
A: If you need to schedule an inspection, you should call the day before work will be ready for inspection. For example, if your work will be ready to be inspected on Tuesday, request inspection on Monday. Work should be accessible to the inspector. You may leave the door unlocked, leave a key onsite for the inspector or have someone onsite. If work is not accessible, a re-inspection fee will be charged. All work should be ready to be inspected at 8:30 AM on the day inspection is requested.

Q: What needs to be completed for my final inspection on a singlewide manufactured home?
A: Before occupancy is allowed and power approved, a manufactured home must be completely set up, blocked, tied down, all electrical, plumbing, plumbing test and sewer connections complete and landings provided. The landing must be at least a 3 x 3; you can build up to a 6 x 6 landing without a charge.

Our office does not sell code books. You may purchase code books from North Carolina Department of Insurance. Our Code Enforcement Officers can help clarify code sections you may find difficult, however, we are not able to design structures
