South Dakota Domicile- Residency Affidavit Question.


Recommended Posts

A little help/advice please?  We are in the process of selling our home and will be going to full time with a South Dakota Domicile.  We have our South Dakota PMB and recently purchased our full time fifth wheel using the address (from out of state).  We are planning to head up to get our drivers license and register our truck and trailer in the next few weeks.  On the residency affidavit, question 3 asks if you maintain residence in another state.  Obviously we do at the moment, but won't be once the house sells.  Guidance on how this question should be answered?  If we say yes, does it create any issues for establishing South Dakota Residency?

 

thanks in advance

You can own a house without it being your residence; landlords do this all the time. Once you move into your RV and change your domicile, the answer is no. We had to camp in our RV ten minutes from our house for a few weeks while the sale was happening but that actually made the transition easier.

You answer NO as you are living in the 5th wheel

With all due respect, don't overthink the problem.  The folks in SD are great and rather laid-back.  They aren't the kind to worry about the sorts of details you are raising.  JMO

The ownership of a house does not make you a resident of that state. There is nothing to prevent you from moving to SD before the house in another state sells and that is what I would do. If you cut ties with your present domicile and move things to SD, there will be no problem in doing this before the sale of the former home is completed. You could even own the property and rent it to someone else and not be domiciled there as many people do that. Your domicile is the place where you reside and do business and that may or may not be where you own real estate.

When we moved to South Dakota, we had our vehicles transferred to SD plates before we left Maryland using the mail service we were going to use.

When we arrived in SD, we got the certificate of overnight stay and got our driver's licenses.

Then later we had new wills made to follow SD laws and stayed with our credit union in Detroit.
