  2. At the time the owner of any new manufactured home, as defined in section 700.010, which was acquired in a transaction subject to sales tax under the Missouri sales tax law makes application to the director of revenue for an official certificate of title for such manufactured home, he shall present to the director of revenue evidence satisfactory to the director of revenue showing the purchase price exclusive of any charge incident to the extension of credit paid by or charged to the applicant in the acquisition of the manufactured home, or that no sales tax was incurred in its acquisition, and if sales tax was incurred in its acquisition, the applicant shall pay or cause to be paid to the director of revenue the sales tax provided by the Missouri sales tax law in addition to the registration fees now or hereafter required according to law, and the director of revenue shall not issue a certificate of title for any new manufactured home subject to sales tax as provided in the Missouri sales tax law until the tax levied for the sale of the same under sections 144.010 to 144.510 has been paid as provided in this section. As used in this subsection, the term "purchase price" shall mean the total amount of the contract price agreed upon between the seller and the applicant in the acquisition of the new manufactured home regardless of the medium of payment therefor. In the event that the purchase price is unknown or undisclosed, or that the evidence thereof is not satisfactory to the director of revenue, the same shall be fixed by appraisement by the director. The director of the department of revenue shall endorse upon the official certificate of title issued by him upon such application an entry showing that such sales tax has been paid or that the manufactured home represented by the certificate is exempt from sales tax and state the ground for such exemption.

  3.

On proof of death of one of the persons in whose names the certificate was issued, surrender of the outstanding certificate of title, and on application and payment of the fee for an original certificate of title, the director of revenue shall issue a new certificate of title for the manufactured home to the surviving owner or owners; and the current valid certificate of number shall be so transferred.

A certificate of title for a manufactured home issued in the names of two or more persons that shows on its face that the persons hold their interest in the manufactured home as tenants in common, on death of one of the named persons, may be transferred by the director of revenue on application by the surviving owners and the personal representative or successors of the deceased owner. Upon being presented proof of death of one of the persons in whose names the certificate of title was issued, surrender of the outstanding certificate of title, and on application and payment of the fee for an original certificate of title, the director of revenue shall issue a new certificate of title for the manufactured home to the surviving owners and personal representative or successors of the deceased owner; and the current valid certificate of number shall be so transferred.

  5. When an owner wants to add or delete a name or names on an application for certificate of title to a manufactured home that would cause it to be inconsistent with the name or names listed on the notice of lien, the owner shall provide the director with documentation evidencing the lienholder's authorization to add or delete a name or names on an application for certificate of title.
