Deciding to sell your private home will prevent 1000’s of dollars in realtor commissions. In my submission to the Legislation Fee, I identified the disparity between freeholds and leaseholds on parks or estates and park homes, in relation to website guidelines which, unusually, park home house owners have a statutory proper to challenge and an entitlement to a written assertion, whereas leaseholders and freeholders don’t.
The Call for Evidence can also be seeking evidence on the appropriate index to be used when finishing up a pitch fee evaluation (CPI or RPI); whether ‘fit and proper’ controls should be utilized within the sector; and views on the Park Homes Working Group’s suggestions on how native authorities will be assisted additional in their licensing functions.
I was part of that Working Group along with the BH & HPA and though I mentioned and did all that I could to get the ten% included into the current review, I stood alone in opposition to the BH & HPA and there was never going to be an agreement between us. Nonetheless, the fat lady has not sung yet and the complete anecdotal revenue statistics that title the location homeowners and their parks have been sent by me to many MPs.
Let’s hope that a coming evaluate of the mobile houses act 2013 does something to eradicate the issues and that the Park Houses APPG observe the traces of LKP and that we now have common meetings and importantly the BH & HPA are relegated to a guest organisation and an independent secretariat is appointed.
The Cell Homes Act, 2013, is presently underneath assessment focussing significantly on the ‘fairness’ of the costs imposed on sites, harassment and transparency of ownership, which can often be hidden behind a sequence of management and service firms.
