Do you agree? BH&HPA members and Holiday Licence Agreement

The holiday season is upon us and fingers are being crossed for a sunny start. Not least because it will hopefully attract all those potential caravan and lodge buyers to your park. The new season is also a good time to undertake a review of the Holiday Licence Agreement you will be offering to your buyers. If you are a British Homes & Holiday Park Association (BH&HPA) member and you have not already adopted the model Holiday Licence Agreement, then the BH&HPA strongly recommend that you offer these terms to all of your holiday home purchasers. The latest agreement is available on the BH&HPA website and is designed to assist you in meeting the requirements of consumer protection law. If however you have traditionally prepared your own agreement, then you should be routinely checking the terms to ensure that they also comply with current consumer legislation. The same would apply to your Park Rules. If you do not have an agreement in place at all and have always worked on a verbal basis then now is a good time to review that decision. Verbal agreements, although recognised in law, can sometimes be very difficult to enforce if the existence of the terms cannot be proved and therefore the safest option for both parties is to agree terms with your customers in writing. If you have any questions about this or have doubts about the enforceability of your current terms or need advice on preparing a contract or reviewing your park rules please contact the parks team on 01392 207020 or email
