Consultation description

The Mobile Homes Act 2013 made significant changes to the law on park homes. The government gave a commitment to review this in 2017.

The review, which calls for evidence about practices in the sector and the effectiveness of legislation, is in 2 parts.

Part 1 of the review is a call for evidence on the fairness of charges, the transparency of site ownership and on experience of harassment.

Part 2 of the review, published in November 2017, is a call for evidence on how effective local authority licensing has been, how well the procedures for selling mobile homes, making site rules and pitch fee reviews are working and whether ‘fit and proper’ controls need to be applied in the sector.
