New site rules procedure for residential parks


The Mobile Homes (Site Rules) (England) Regulations 2014

At long last the government has published regulations dealing with site rules.

The Mobile Homes (Site Rules) (England) Regulations 2014 comes into force on 4 February 2014 and will apply to all residential parks in England.

The regulations make it a requirement for park owners to:

  1. Consult with all occupiers and any qualifying residents’ association on the new site rules
  2. Use the procedure set out in the regulations for making the site rules (and changing and varying the site rules)
  3. Use the forms which the regulations say must be used
  4. Deposit the site rules with the local authority

Residential park home
The Mobile Homes (Site Rules) (England) Regulations 2014 comes into force on 4 February 2014 and will apply to all residential parks in England.

The regulations give park owners a year from 4 February 2014 in which to follow the procedure as set out in regulations and lodge the same with the local authority.

If park owners fail to follow these regulations within the time frame as stipulated, park owners will not be able to rely on existing park rules.  Therefore the cut off point for complying with the new process will be 3 February 2015.

    Being a park home owner the new rules proposed for the site where I live appear to affect my enjoyment in one area in particular that being that visitors to my home visitors with pets are not allowed. As my children/grandchildren have a pet dog they will not be able to visit or stay on short visits. As a home owner I am already prohibited from owning a dog all of which is against my basic enjoyment. I fear that if I do not agree to the the new rules there is a risk of recrimination be forced to sell or face eviction.
