The Relevant date
In a recent case, the First-tier Tribunal was asked to decide on what date a residents’ association had to have over 50% of residents on the park as its members (counting one member per home) in order to qualify as a residents association under the Mobile Homes Act 1983. The Tribunal said they had to take into account all information available at the time the decision was made and not just at the date of the application. This meant that the association membership had to meet the 50% requirement on the date of the hearing and not just on the date that the application was made.
