Buying a park home: What do I need to know?
Before buying a park home, there’s a few things you should be aware of. Below, is a list of five key things to bear in mind when considering buying a park home.
First of all, you will be buying the home and not the plot. This isn’t a bad thing as it means that the site owner is responsible for maintaining and managing each pitch.
A pitch fee will be required for the occupation of the plot. Some park homes may charge separately for water, gas and electricity.
Council tax will be required to the local authority.
If your park home/site has rules then you must comply with them at all times.
Anyone buying a park home will need to complete all necessary paperwork. Likewise, you should also ensure that you have been provided with the correct paperwork and forms.
Just like purchasing a property, these points above are just as important when buying park homes. Like a mortgage, it’s important to cover all aspects and avenues, as this will highlight and show up exactly what’s expected. This will then ensure that everything has been done correctly and meets with the latest Government regulations for buying a park home.
