HMLP offers loans from $1,000 to $50,000 to property owners. Borrowers sign a promissory note, and a mortgage is recorded as a lien against the property to secure these loans. HMLP also lends from $1,000 to $30,000 to owners of manufactured or mobile homes. Borrowers sign a promissory note and a UCC-1 filed against the home secure these loans.
