While park home living is increasing in popularity in recent years it remains a new concept to many individuals just like with a traditional house it is recommended that the purchase of a park home is conducted via a Solicitor.
For many people finding the perfect residential park home site is possibly the most difficult part of the buying process – make the wrong decision and the mistake could be costly both emotionally and financially. Unlike many other aspects in life for instance like hotels, residential park home sites do not have a rating scheme and unfortunately there are bad site owners as well as good ones. Separating the good from the bad can be tricky and may involve asking awkward questions.
To eliminate some of the uncertainty of buying a park home we suggest that prospective buyers follow a few simple guidelines.
Make sure the park home site owner is a member of one of the trade associations for park homes.
Research into prospective residential park home sites – check with the local Council that the site in question has the appropriate licence and that it covers all the properties contained on the site.
Always ask for a copy of the Park Rules which will set out the terms which you have to keep your home.
