Park Home Sale Success

Site owners Hills Leisure (UK) Ltd were determined to try and end the "Mobile Homes Act" agreement of Mr S.  Being aware of his efforts to sell his home, they started court action to try and end it, so they could get back his plot.

Solicitor Tim Selley successfully resisted this claim and also got an order from the Court that Hills should pay Mr S' costs.  After two years of trying, Mr S was at last able to sell his home.

Tim says "Mr S had tried for two years to sell.  During that period Hills did many things to block it.  At the start when Mr S found a buyer who was agred 52, Hills said they would not allow it, as there was a site "age rule" of 55; despite the fact on their website, they said this was 50.  When I pointed this out to them they took down the website, but not before I had taken a copy of it!  They also even wrote to the estate agent saying he should not be helping in selling it and said they were reporting him to Trading Standards.

"Sale blocking" (when certain site owners try and prevent a sale by a park home owner) is certainly less likely now, due to changes starting with the Mobile Homes Act 2013.  However it can still happen".

If you have any concerns about sale blocking or any other aspect of park homes law, Tim is happy to discuss this with you.
