Misuse of Holiday Homes
By choosing to buy a lodge to use as your permanent residence on a holiday park, exposes what for most of us would be our main asset, to great risk. Once the Local Council finds out that holiday homes are being used for residential purposes, they can prosecute the park owner for either breach of his/her Site Licence Conditions or for breach of his/her Planning Consent. They may also serve an Enforcement Order directly upon the resident to remove their lodge from the Park. We do advise you to think very carefully before placing, what is usually most people's largest asset, in such a precarious position.
You will have no protection under law should this happen, whereas if you purchase your home on a park licensed for residential use, should anything untoward happen you will have the full protection of the Mobile Homes Act 1983, amended by the Mobile Homes Act 2013.
A responsible holiday park owner will ask to see proof of your primary address away from the park at regular times, to ensure that no one is breaching their Site Licence Conditions.
