Guide to Buying a Park Home
Guide to buying a residential park home
Introduction
Congratulations! By choosing to buy a residential park home you are joining over 200,000
occupiers who already live on parks around the country. Park home living can be a very
rewarding experience, and choosing the right solicitor for your purchase will help en-
sure you make the best start in your new home.
The main difference between buying a park home and a traditional “bricks and mortar”
property is that with a park home you will not own the land on which the park home is
sited. You will enter into a licence agreement with the park owner which sets out the
terms under which you will be allowed to live on the park.
While many park home buyers choose not to use a solicitor to buy their park home, the
law in this area can be complicated and an experienced solicitor will give you the
reassurance and peace of mind that things have been done properly.
In this guide we explain in practical terms what you, your proposed seller and the park
owner must each do in order to comply with the law when purchasing a park home. We
explain the purpose of the various forms that need to be completed and what
information must be provided. We also explain how the procedure differs depending on
what type of agreement you are taking over.
If you have any questions about the information in this guide, or would like to know
more about our services generally, please contact a member of the team. We are always
happy to help!

- Park home client, Kent
•	 the occupation agreement/written
statement;
•	 a copy of any previous assignments of
the written statement;
•	 the park rules;
•	 written details of charges for utilities
and services supplied to the home,
when they are due and when they will
next be reviewed;
•	 written details of any other
charges relating to the home or
park, including charges for the
use of a garage, parking space or
outbuilding;
•	 a copy of any current warranty for
the home, and
•	 a copy of any surveys of the home,
base or pitch which the seller had
carried out in the past year.
Assignment of an Existing Agreement
If your occupation agreement began prior to 26 May
2013 and has not been assigned since that date, it will
be an Existing Agreement and the following procedure
should be followed:
Once you’ve made an offer on a park home and it has been accepted, the seller must
provide you with the following documents at least 28 days before your anticipated date of
completion, unless you agree to a shorter period being given*:
1
* If the seller is unable to provide any of the documents listed above, they should explain
to you in writing why this is the case.
The park owner can only object if they think that you, or someone who intends to live
with you –
•	 do not meet any minimum age limit on the park;
•	 want to keep animals which are not allowed on the park;
•	 want to park vehicles of a type which are not allowed on the park; or
•	 want to park more vehicles on the park than are allowed.
The information referred to in Step 2 must be provided on the Buyer’s Information form.
This and other forms listed in this Guide can be downloaded for free from the
government website: www.gov.uk/park-homes-guidance
Both you and the seller must also complete a Notice of Proposed Sale form which the
seller must send to the park owner at least 21 days before completion.
If the park owner objects to the proposed sale and assignment, they must, within 21 days
of receiving the Notice –
In addition to the documents listed at Step 1, the seller must provide the following at
least 28 days before completion, unless you agree to a shorter period being given:
2 3
•	 the proposed sale price of the park
home;
•	 details of the commission (normally
10% of the sale price) payable to the
park owner on completion of the sale;
•	 details of the pitch fee, including
when it is payable and the annual
review date;
•	 details of any pitch fee arrears and
any agreement which the seller has
with the park owner for clearing the
arrears;
•	 the council tax band for the park
home;
•	 the name of the park owner and the
address where any notices may be
served;
•	 the name and address of the local
authority which licenses the park;
•	 the date when the agreement started
and, if the seller was not the original
owner, the date when the agreement
was assigned to the seller;
•	 an explanation of the assignment
process and the effect of any Refusal
Notice or Refusal Order on the
prospective sale;
•	 a statement that the seller is the legal
owner of the park home, that the
home will be vacant upon completion
and that there are no outstanding
loans relating to the home; and
•	 details of any legal proceedings
relating to the home, agreement or
park in which the seller is involved
at the time when the information is
provided.
•	 apply to the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) for an Order to prevent the sale
and assignment from going ahead (known as a Refusal Order), and
•	 inform the seller in writing that they have done so.
If the park owner does not take both steps by the end of the 21-day period, your purchase
can go ahead.
Immediately prior to completion, you and the seller will exchange signed copies of the
Assignment form which effects the transfer of occupation rights from the seller to you.
On completion you will pay the seller the agreed sale price, less the 10% statutory
commission. Within 7 days of completion you must send the park owner a Notice of
Assignment which sets out:
4
•	 your name and the name(s) of anyone
else who intends to live in the park
home with you;
•	 the address of the park home;
•	 the date of assignment of the
agreement;
•	 the price paid for the park home and
the amount of commission payable to
the park owner; and
•	 the seller’s forwarding address.
After receiving the Notice of Assignment, the park owner should provide you with details
of the bank account where they want the commission to be paid. You have 7 days from
receipt of these details to pay.
Assignment of a New Agreement
Where the occupation agreement being assigned began after
26 May 2013, or has been assigned since that date, it will be
a New Agreement.
To purchase a park home and take an assignment of a New
Agreement you and your seller will need to follow all of the
steps set out in this guide, except for step 3 (in relation to the
Notice of Proposed Sale form), which only applies to Existing
Agreements.
Make sure that you keep all of the signed forms in a safe place for future reference.

solicitor who can guide you through the process, deal with any difficulties that may arise

Guide to buying a park home

  • 1. Guide to Buying a Park Home
  • 2. Guide to buying a residential park home Introduction Congratulations! By choosing to buy a residential park home you are joining over 200,000 occupiers who already live on parks around the country. Park home living can be a very rewarding experience, and choosing the right solicitor for your purchase will help en- sure you make the best start in your new home. The main difference between buying a park home and a traditional “bricks and mortar” property is that with a park home you will not own the land on which the park home is sited. You will enter into a licence agreement with the park owner which sets out the terms under which you will be allowed to live on the park. While many park home buyers choose not to use a solicitor to buy their park home, the law in this area can be complicated and an experienced solicitor will give you the reassurance and peace of mind that things have been done properly. In this guide we explain in practical terms what you, your proposed seller and the park owner must each do in order to comply with the law when purchasing a park home. We explain the purpose of the various forms that need to be completed and what information must be provided. We also explain how the procedure differs depending on what type of agreement you are taking over. If you have any questions about the information in this guide, or would like to know more about our services generally, please contact a member of the team. We are always happy to help! Morgan Wolfe Solicitor Meet our team Jessica Sutherland Paralegal John Clement Partner “We found IBB provided an excellent service, always professional, polite and courteous.” - Park home client, Kent
  • 3. • the occupation agreement/written statement; • a copy of any previous assignments of the written statement; • the park rules; • written details of charges for utilities and services supplied to the home, when they are due and when they will next be reviewed; • written details of any other charges relating to the home or park, including charges for the use of a garage, parking space or outbuilding; • a copy of any current warranty for the home, and • a copy of any surveys of the home, base or pitch which the seller had carried out in the past year. Assignment of an Existing Agreement If your occupation agreement began prior to 26 May 2013 and has not been assigned since that date, it will be an Existing Agreement and the following procedure should be followed: Once you’ve made an offer on a park home and it has been accepted, the seller must provide you with the following documents at least 28 days before your anticipated date of completion, unless you agree to a shorter period being given*: 1 * If the seller is unable to provide any of the documents listed above, they should explain to you in writing why this is the case.
  • 4. The park owner can only object if they think that you, or someone who intends to live with you – • do not meet any minimum age limit on the park; • want to keep animals which are not allowed on the park; • want to park vehicles of a type which are not allowed on the park; or • want to park more vehicles on the park than are allowed. The information referred to in Step 2 must be provided on the Buyer’s Information form. This and other forms listed in this Guide can be downloaded for free from the government website: www.gov.uk/park-homes-guidance Both you and the seller must also complete a Notice of Proposed Sale form which the seller must send to the park owner at least 21 days before completion. If the park owner objects to the proposed sale and assignment, they must, within 21 days of receiving the Notice – In addition to the documents listed at Step 1, the seller must provide the following at least 28 days before completion, unless you agree to a shorter period being given: 2 3 • the proposed sale price of the park home; • details of the commission (normally 10% of the sale price) payable to the park owner on completion of the sale; • details of the pitch fee, including when it is payable and the annual review date; • details of any pitch fee arrears and any agreement which the seller has with the park owner for clearing the arrears; • the council tax band for the park home; • the name of the park owner and the address where any notices may be served; • the name and address of the local authority which licenses the park; • the date when the agreement started and, if the seller was not the original owner, the date when the agreement was assigned to the seller; • an explanation of the assignment process and the effect of any Refusal Notice or Refusal Order on the prospective sale; • a statement that the seller is the legal owner of the park home, that the home will be vacant upon completion and that there are no outstanding loans relating to the home; and • details of any legal proceedings relating to the home, agreement or park in which the seller is involved at the time when the information is provided. • apply to the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) for an Order to prevent the sale and assignment from going ahead (known as a Refusal Order), and • inform the seller in writing that they have done so. If the park owner does not take both steps by the end of the 21-day period, your purchase can go ahead.
  • 5. Immediately prior to completion, you and the seller will exchange signed copies of the Assignment form which effects the transfer of occupation rights from the seller to you. On completion you will pay the seller the agreed sale price, less the 10% statutory commission. Within 7 days of completion you must send the park owner a Notice of Assignment which sets out: 4 • your name and the name(s) of anyone else who intends to live in the park home with you; • the address of the park home; • the date of assignment of the agreement; • the price paid for the park home and the amount of commission payable to the park owner; and • the seller’s forwarding address. After receiving the Notice of Assignment, the park owner should provide you with details of the bank account where they want the commission to be paid. You have 7 days from receipt of these details to pay. Assignment of a New Agreement Where the occupation agreement being assigned began after 26 May 2013, or has been assigned since that date, it will be a New Agreement. To purchase a park home and take an assignment of a New Agreement you and your seller will need to follow all of the steps set out in this guide, except for step 3 (in relation to the Notice of Proposed Sale form), which only applies to Existing Agreements. Make sure that you keep all of the signed forms in a safe place for future reference.
  • 6. Why use a Solicitor?
