In these rules:

• “occupier” means anyone who occupies a park home, whether under an

Agreement to which the Mobile Homes Act 1983 applies or under a tenancy

or any other agreement.

• “you” and “your” refers to the homeowner and any other occupier of a park


• “we” and “our” refers to the park owner

These rules are in place to ensure acceptable standards are maintained on the

park, which will be of general benefit to occupiers, and to promote and maintain

community cohesion. They form part of the Agreement by which homeowners

occupy the pitch in accordance with the Mobile Homes Act 1983, as amended.

With one exception the rules also apply to any occupiers of park homes who rent

their home.

The only rule which does not apply to occupiers who rent their home is rule 30

about the colour of the exterior of the home, as someone renting their home would

not be responsible for exterior maintenance.

None of these rules is to have retrospective effect. Accordingly:

• they are only to apply from the date on which they take effect, which is

29th November 2014; and

• no occupier who is in occupation on that date will be treated as being in

breach due to circumstances which were in existence on that date and which

would not have been a breach of the rules in existence before that date.

These rules also apply (for so long as they live on the park) to the park owner and

any employees, with the exception of the following rules 13, 15 and 24.

The Park Owner does not accept any liability whatsoever for loss or damage to any

property of the Homeowner, including the park home, their family or any visitor to

the park.
