Park homes are residential mobile homes, some resembling bungalows and others closer to traditional caravans. Currently there are about 250,000 people living in park homes on more than 1700 sites in England and Wales. Park homes can be bought at relatively low prices. Although you usually buy your Park Home, you have to pay the site owner a rent for the pitch on which your home is installed and for maintenance of the communal areas. All privately owned sites must be licensed by the local authority.
The Park Home Owners Charter is a useful document, drawn up jointly by park home residents associations and industry trade associations in consultation with Government.
