Change has come to the Parks industry

1 October 2015, marked the day that park owners were required to change their business practices for holiday and residential parks in one form or another. It was the day that various pieces of legislation and/or associated regulations came into force and these include: –

  • The Consumer Rights Act 2015 which introduces additional consumer rights in the sale of goods and services.
  • The Assured Shorthold Tenancy Notices and Prescribed Requirements (England) Regulations 2015 which requires that landlords use a specific form for ending a certain tenancies and provide tenants with specific information and documentation.
  • The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 which require smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to be installed in specific circumstances.
  • The National Minimum Wage (Amendment) Regulations 2015 which increases the national minimum wage.

Park owners will be obliged to comply with the requirements of this legislation from now on and a failure to do so could have serious consequences.

We will be looking at some of these legislative updates more closely in our next Parklaw newsletter.
