Park Homes Sell Well at Auction House UK
New laws have come into force at the end of May 2013 governing the buying and selling of park homes. From now on, park home operators will not be allowed to buy and sell properties on their site. The owners of the properties will instead be free to sell their homes on the open market.
Martin Cunningham, Auction House Head of UK Sales says: “owners of park homes can now choose their own sales strategy and auction provides the ideal approach to selling with its speed and certainty.
Auction House UK’s 30 regional auction rooms are already experiencing an increase in inquiries from owners of mobile park homes seeking to sell by auction.”
The changes are in the Mobile Homes Act 2013, which also gives new powers of prosecution on the grounds of harassment. The Government has also set up a park homes advice line, which is being run by the Leasehold Advisory Service.
There are an estimated 84,000 households living in park homes on 2,000 sites in England. Most of the residents are elderly people. Martin Cunningham MNAEA Auction House UK – Head of UK Sales 07771 567 205 email@example.com
