When I buy a park home do I need a new pitch agreement?

When you buy a new park home, the site owner must provide you with a new pitch agreement.

In contrast, when you purchase a pre-owned park home, the previous owner’s pitch agreement is assigned to you at the time of sale. As the express terms have already been agreed between the previous owner and the site owner, you have no right to ask for a new agreement.

LEASE is governed by a board, appointed as individuals by the Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.


You DO NOT NEED to sign a new pitch agreement if your site owner changes. Your existing terms and conditions will stay the same if the site is sold.

If you are asked to sign a new agreement get advice from LEASE or a solicitor before doing so.
