Neighbours at war – should you become involved?

From time to time a park owner, of either holiday or a residential park, will receive a complaint from one holiday caravan owner or mobile home owner about another. They will usually expect the park owner to step in and resolve any dispute that has arisen. The question for all park owners is, are you required to resolve disputes and be called on to exercise the judgment of Solomon?

Much will depend on the terms of the agreement with the holiday caravan owner or mobile home occupier. However, generally, the agreements will impose behaviour standards on the owners and occupiers and the park owner will not be responsible for policing disputes although if a breach of the agreement terms is alleged they will have to consider whether this is the case and if so whether notice, requiring that the breach be remedied, is required to be served.

If you have any queries regarding neighbouring owners or occupiers who have fallen out with their neighbours or if you are interested in subscribing to Parklaw contact the Parks Team by telephone on 01392 207020 or email
