What if you have no Licence Agreement?

With the start of the 2016 season upon us, some park owners may find themselves in a position where for whatever reason they do not have a written Licence Agreement with a customer who has purchased a holiday home.

While all holiday park owners should ensure that they have written Licence Agreements with everyone who buys a holiday home, the absence of such a written licence does not necessarily mean there is no licence at all. Much will depend on what was discussed between the park owner and the holiday home owner and what, if any, written information was provided to the customer pre-contract.

In order to avoid any uncertainty, and issues as regards pre-contract information requirements in the first place, park owners should ensure that they enter into written Licence Agreements with all customers who purchase holiday homes and ensure that they supply the required minimum information set out in The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
