They now come in different sizes along with various luxuries and amenities.
The whole concept of living in a park home has taken on a life of its own. People go on long vacations, some spanning months, to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life to enjoy the great peaceful and scenic outdoors … and guess what? Things are only going to get better from here on in.
A lot is being said about the new laws that are about to be implemented to protect park home owners as well as their property. England and Wales will be the first ones to enforce these laws, called the Mobile Homes Bill. It has already been passed and approved in the House of Commons paving the way for swift implementation. Countries like Scotland are also expected to follow suit in the coming months.
The main objective of this measure is to address and tackle abuses reported on residential parks. To be more specific, the new law will tackle the issue of sale blocking, preventing residential park owners to create problems for those wishing to purchase park homes. It removes their involvement in the process altogether.
The news has been greatly welcomed by the park home community. Homeowners are particularly pleased to hear that the issue of site licensing abuse will also get addressed with these laws through charging. This will provide more resources for local authorities in the area to conduct enforcement work more thoroughly and meticulously.
And if that wasn’t enough, the Prime Minister himself is getting involved to address the situation much to the delight of park home residents. David Cameron was speaking in the House of Commons when he brought these issues to light and was particularly critical of rogue operators, who are a big cause for concern within the park home community. He outlined that they were making huge profits and exploiting the current system to make life miserable for peaceful park home residents.
This is all very encouraging news for park homeowners and for prospective buyers still pondering over the decision to move into one. People rent or buy park homes to enjoy their vacation and the scenic beauty that surrounds them. Tougher laws like the Mobile Homes Bill is one step in the right direction to ensure that people who opt for this option do so with extreme confidence.
