AGO Opinions with Topic: HOMESTEADS
AGO 1980 No. 23 >  November 25, 1980
CLAIMING MOBILE HOME AS HOMESTEAD PROPERTY A mobile home used or intended for use as a residence may be claimed as homestead property for the purposes of chapter 6.12 RCW so long as the claimant has a sufficient interest in the land upon which the mobile home is located to allow him to maintain the home on the property.
AGO 1996 No. 6 >  March 1, 1996
Effect of homestead declaration and declaration of allodial ownership on property tax liability 1.  A recorded declaration that a property owner holds real estate in "allodial freehold" is ineffective to exempt the real estate from property taxes levied under state law. 2.  A declaration of homestead filed on real estate pursuant to chapter 6.13 RCW does not prevent the foreclosure and sale of real estate for unpaid property taxes, as property taxes are not "debts of the owner" and thus are not rendered exempt from execution by RCW 6.13.070.
