The Government has published a Briefing Paper which summarises the changes to the Mobile Homes Act 2013.
The Minister for Housing – Brandon Lewis – commented that a review of the legislation will be conducted in 2017. This will provide an opportunity to assess the impact of the new legislation since it came into force.
Many park home residents were unhappy about the commission rate of 10% which is required to be paid to the site owner upon sale of a park home.
However, the review will consider the entire park homes industry rather than focusing on just the commission rate. The review will be undertaken by a government working group chaired by an Under Secretary of State and will include input from national resident groups and industry trade bodies.
