What is your favourite thing about owning a park home or lodge?





Understanding park home tribunals

legalGoing to court is often a very stressful and daunting experience. Park home owners typically seek a peaceful lifestyle with litigation the last thing anybody wants. Tim Selley, a partner at Crosse and Crosse Solicitors LLP, and Ibraheem Dulmeer, a solicitor at the Leasehold Advisory Service (LEASE) address some of your concerns with tribunal action

The First-Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) or the Residential Valuation Tribunal in Wales, hear almost all park/mobile home proceedings (“Tribunal”). The County Court still deals with cases where the issue is over possession (termination of home owner agreements).

HOW IS AN APPLICATION MADE?

The Tribunal can now determine most applications in relation to park home matters. All of the application forms can be found on the Park Homes Advice website provided by LEASE. The website, http://parkhomes.lease-advice.org/forms/ contains a clear list of all the forms necessary to make an application; these are entitled Form PH1 to Form PH19.

For the jurisdiction of Wales, applications will be made to the Residential Property Tribunal. The forms are available here:

http://rpt.gov.wales/guidanceandforms/residential-property-tribunals/park-homes/?lang=en

It is important that you read the notes contained in these forms before you complete and submit an application. The notes are jargon free and will outline what needs to be sent with the completed application form to the appropriate regional Tribunal office. Office addresses can be found on the back page of the forms
