Things to Consider When Buying a Park Home

May 30, 2017 3:16:00 PM



If you've recently made the decision to move to a park home, you can look forward to having much more money in your pocket and being surrounded by like-minded people who'll provide company for the rest of your days. However, just like buying a property, it's a decision you shouldn't take lightly. There are thousands of park home estates all across the UK, and no two parks are the same. Plus, though park homes are more affordable than bricks and mortar, you still need to be aware of the costs involved.

If you find the right park home, you can feel confident in your investment and look forward to a peaceful yet exciting retirement. To help you make the right choice, this article explains the main factors you need to take into consideration and some details with which you need to be familiar.


Understanding the Contract Terms and Fees



In most cases when you buy a Park home, you will own the home itself but not the land on which it lies. You need to be aware of the contract terms so that you know what you can and can’t do within the surrounding area, and you also need to understand the terms of ownership. If you're moving to a residential park home, you'll likely have the right to remain there all-year-round, but make sure you don't buy a home in a holiday park that closes for one or two months every year.


Choosing the Right Site


Park homes vary widely regarding location, on-site amenities, and rules of living, and you'll need to consider them all carefully to make the right decision. Do you want a home near countryside trails and natural, scenic views, or would you prefer a beachside location with an urban development nearby? Do you want to live in a park full of families, holidaymakers and retirees alike, or would you prefer to live on an estate reserved for the over 50s?



Some parks boast all the luxury amenities you could ever imagine, from swimming pools to on-site bars. However, you'll save cash and enjoy a more peaceful atmosphere without the herds of families and children by choosing a more straightforward park.

By moving to a park home and giving up bricks and mortar, you'll have more money to stretch your pension further and neighbours that'll provide good companionship, and as long as you find a park that agrees with your terms, you'll probably never need to relocate again.
