Your rights and obligations are listed in a written agreement with the park (or site) owner. This sets out:
- your minimum legal rights and obligations, like your right to keep your park home on its pitch
- the rules, charges and services
You have 28 days to review it before signing.
Even if you don’t have a written agreement, you still have all the rights set out in the Mobile Homes Act of 1983.
Keeping your home in good condition
- repair your home when necessary
- keep the outside of your home and pitch clean and tidy, including any fences or outbuildings that you own or use on your pitch
Privately owned sites must have a licence from the local council. The park owner must clearly display the licence. It will usually have conditions for:
- how many homes can be in the park
- services and amenities
- health and safety
To complain about conditions in your park, talk to the park owner first. If the issue isn’t sorted out, contact your local council.
You could be forced to leave if you live on a site without planning permission for residential use.
