How to obtain title for mobile home paid for in full?

Home paid for in full in 07/10. Seller withholding title for 2010 taxes that seller owes. Seller also breached contract by handwriting additional amounts he said that I owed because expenses to ready home site cost more than he thought it would. Home was actually paid for in full by FEMA but with additional charges I paid payments for one more year. My original home was replaced because it burnt in the OK wildfires in 2009. Is there a time line that he has to provide my title or where do I go from here? The mobile home needs to be added to my homestead exemption in January but I can’t do that without the title.

Your best bet in order to have this move as quickly as it can to make that exemption deadline is to sue him in Court to force him to turn over the title.  I would also consult with an attorney on the issues as to the contract.  From my understanding of your question you paid the additional amounts he wrote in.  You should not have.  You can not change a contract "unilaterally" meaning only one party changes it after it is signed by both.  It is not your fault that he did not estimate the charges properly.  That is his problem not yours.  Consider speaking with the attorney about adding it to the suit.  Good luck.
