Through the Mobile Homes Act 2013, the Government has marked its commitment to providing protection to park home owners and to enable them to sell their homes at the full market value without undue interference from site operators. The commission that the site owner is entitled to receive on the sale of a home is up to 10 per cent, and represents a legitimate income strand in running a park home business. It enables park home sites to be adequately managed and maintained. Where sites are not being properly managed local authorities have new enforcement powers to require compliance with licence conditions. In that context, there are no current plans to review the amount of commission payable on the sale of a park home, to the site owner.
