FAQs

A good number of our residents, along with many others who have enquired about purchasing a home from us, are relative newcomers to park home living. We are here to help and shall be pleased to answer any questions that you may have. Below are a series of more commonly asked questions…

The pitch fees vary across our four parks. They are reviewed annually and can differ between twin and single unit pitches.

For council tax, all of the homes on our parks are in Band A, but the actual amounts differ between the districts in which the parks are located.

Should you wish to find out the current outgoings relating to a home or park that you are interested in, then please do contact us on 0118 932 8328 or via our contact form.

Residents are responsible for normal household expenses, such as electricity, gas and water bills and for arranging their own home insurance.
Our park homes are not sold on a leasehold basis. Greenford Park Homes owns the freehold to each of its parks and they have permanent planning permission for use as park home estates.

Park home owners on residential parks are provided with a Written Statement under the Mobile Homes Act 1983. This provides the resident with an indefinite security of tenure, subject to abiding by the terms of the agreement. Residents’ right to stay in their home on their plot, for as long as they wish, is protected.

We are very happy to liaise with your solicitor and we do recommend obtaining your own professional advice. We find that most purchasers of park homes do not employ the services of a solicitor, however.

There are plenty of surprising savings that can be made when purchasing a park home and on that note, you may also be interested to know that Stamp Duty is not levied on park home purchases!

Brand new homes are supplied with a 10 year Gold Shield Warranty. You can find out more about Gold Shield on our Peace of Mind page, or on the Gold Shield website.

Pre-owned homes are provided with the balance of the 10 year Gold Shield Warranty, if any remains. All pre-owned homes sold by Greenfords and sited on our parks are supplied with our own 12-month-warranty. Further details are available on request.

Greenford Park Homes is responsible for the maintenance of the communal grounds and park boundaries. Residents are responsible for the maintenance of their home, the pitch and any outbuildings, fencing or vegetation enjoyed with the pitch.
