Selling Holiday Caravans
It is fairly common practice for park owners to claim a percentage of the sale price should you decide to sell your caravan holiday home, whether they actually sell the caravan or not. The law states that where the occupier sells the home, and assigns the agreement, the park owner will be entitled to receive a transfer fee (commission) on the sale: this is usually around 10%.
However, if you do decide to sell your holiday home:
You have the right to sell your holiday home, either privately or through the park owner.
All new agreements issued under the Charter shall not place an obligation on the park home owner to sell the holiday home to the park owner.
You must consult the park owner as s/he is required to give consent to your prospective buyer, but is not allowed to withhold approval except on reasonable grounds given in writing.
Full information is published in the Code of Practice for Selling and Siting Holiday Caravans.
If you decide you would like to move your holiday home to another pitch or park, you can, but all moves are subject to the Park Owner's discretion and a charge will be made for the cost of transportation and connections that will vary according to the distance and complication of the move.
