NEW RULES FOR SELLING YOUR PARK HOME IN SCOTLAND

STOP PRESS NEWS!
                                                  
Under The Mobile Homes (Written Statement) (Scotland) Regulations 2013, from 1 September 2013, you will no longer require to sell your home through your site owner or to seek his/her agreement to the assigning of your Written Agreement. If your home is on the market or you expect to market it shortly you should seek new advice and assistance in selling your home since the old regulations are now being replaced to YOUR advantage as listed below extracted from the order:


Sales of Park/Mobile Homes

  1. The order completely removes the requirement for the occupier to seek approval of the site owner to sell their mobile home and assign the agreement.  The amendment not only removes the present implied term requiring consent, but also provides that no payment, other than the commission mentioned below, may be required from the occupier in connection with the sale and assignation.
  2. Commission of up to 10% will continue to be payable to the site owner on the resale of a mobile home. This recognises that the quality and location of the site is an influential factor in the value of the home and goes some way to ensuring that the balance between the occupier and site owner is properly addressed and makes no interference in business viability of privately owned sites.  In order to safeguard the owner, neither the sale nor assignation will have effect until the commission is paid.
  3. The order introduces a provision that entitles the occupier to market their mobile home for sale, using the services of an agent, and that they are entitled to display related marketing signs either on or in the mobile home for this purpose.
  4. It is also sets out that the site owner must allow any agent appointed by the occupier reasonable access to the pitch on which the home for sale is stationed, for valuation and preparing or displaying marketing particulars.
  5. The order introduces a requirement that the resident seller must give the prospective assignee a copy of the written statement and the site rules 28 days in advance of the sale. This will ensure prospective assignees/purchasers are clear on the implied terms and their obligations at the point of sale, including payment of commission to the site owner on resale.
