Recovery of Abandoned Premises


The Housing and Planning Act 2016 includes provisions which will potentially make it easier for a Park Owner to recover an abandoned mobile home which has been let in England on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (“AST”).

Currently proceedings must be issued in the County Court for a possession order, whereas the new procedure should be much quicker and less costly and will allow the Park Owner to re-let the home swiftly.

Subject to certain conditions being met the Act provides that an AST may be brought to an end on the same day that notice to terminate is issued.

These provisions are expected to come into force shortly.
