Enforcing the terms of a Mobile Homes Agreement

All homeowners on residential parks in all jurisdictions in the UK should be issued with a written statement setting out the terms of the agreement (“the Agreement”).  The Agreement will be governed by the legislation for the relevant jurisdiction and the form will be set out in regulations. The Agreement contains specific terms which a homeowner must comply with such as paying pitch fees and maintaining the pitch in a clean and tidy condition.  

All homeowners on residential parks in all jurisdictions in the UK should be issued with a written statement setting out the terms of the agreement (“the Agreement”).  The Agreement will be governed by the legislation for the relevant jurisdiction and the form will be set out in regulations. The Agreement contains specific terms which a homeowner must comply with such as paying pitch fees and maintaining the pitch in a clean and tidy condition.

From time to time a homeowner may be in breach of these terms. When a homeowner fails to comply with their obligations under the Agreement a park owner can serve them with notice of the breach and the requirement that they remedy the breach in a letter known as a Notice of Breach.

A Notice of Breach will require that the homeowner remedies the breaches of the terms of the Agreement within a reasonable time period and is the first formal step in any proceedings.  However in order for the notice to be valid it must comply with the requirements of the relevant mobile homes legislation for the jurisdiction.
