I would hope the MH is still registered and insured in the seller's name until it is delivered. This would relieve you of financial obligation if the fellow had an accident en route. If he has cancelled insurance and turned in the plates he would have to reinsure it and relicense it to drive it down to you. You might even offer to help pay for this but it could be a good financial decision if an accident were to happen.
Payment due only after a final inspection and acceptance by you (the buyer).
The title should be clear and readily available upon delivery with no liens recorded on the title or a lien release accompanying the title. No money should change hands until the title is clear and you can accept ownership.
