Pitch fee arrears – what can you do?
Most owners of holiday or residential parks will have experienced, at some time or another, a customer failing to pay their pitch fees. When this scenario arises the question facing the park owner is, what can be done?
There are a variety of actions that a park owner can take in this scenario and the most suitable one will depend on the facts of each individual case. Initially, a park owner should follow any credit control procedure they have such as sending reminders for late payment. Thereafter the options available to a park owner could include sending a notice of breach potentially giving details of independent organisations who can assist with debt problems, making an application to the small claims court and/or taking the appropriate steps to terminate the customer’s agreement.
