Chubb Bulleid has been acting for some years for owners of mobile home parks and has been instructed on a number of mobile home park transactions, including sales and purchases of mobile home parks and transactions involving individual park homes.
Part of the transaction is to check the extent of the park and any legal complexities within the title deeds. Careful consideration must be given to this issue, and each title must be reviewed with care and full enquiries.
A full review of the documentation and information relating to the business and running of the park is made to ensure that there are no ongoing issues or breaches of any of the Site Licence regulations and conditions and that all required planning is in place.
Chubb Bulleid can advise on transfer and applications for Site Licences for mobile home parks, as well as providing advice on the terms and conditions of standard written statements under the Mobile Homes Act 1983 and its relevance to the purchase of mobile home parks.
Checks will also be made to ensure that the park complies with all current statutory requirements and legislation with regard to electrical appliances, asbestos, fire risk assessment, gas safety and environmental laws.
