We live and work in such a unique sector that seemingly simple things such as selecting a trusted tradesman to renovate your home can feel a bit daunting.
As we know, mobile homes, classified a ‘chattels’, are built to different standards and in a different way to traditional bricks-and-mortar houses. That’s why it’s so important to call in a specialist when in comes to getting work done on your property.
In this month’s issue, we’ve revamped our popular annual suppliers and services directory to bring you all the contacts you’ll ever need in the park home world.
It might not simply be a home refurbishment you’re looking for. You might be interested in checking out the best insurance companies, finance firms and legal eagles around. Fear not, our Guide, which begins on page 51, has all the answers.
As well as that, we’ve also got a feast of fantastic parks for you to explore in your February issue. Our experts travel to Essex, Gloucestershire and Suffolk and tuck into a veritable smorgasbord of mobile home treats (see page 10). Not for the PH&HC team the traditional post-Christmas ‘detox’! We like to gorge on the UK’s best parks and homes all-year-round.
So, on top of the ace sites featured in this issue, we’ve also got reviews of lovely new model homes from leading manufacturers Prestige and Homeseeker! Find out what our panel of experts think on page 24.
Finally, we’ve got a brace a fascinating legal articles (see page 96). The first tackles the sometimes thorny issue of pitch fees and how you can avoid running into problems, be you a home owner or site operator. The second is about an intriguing case heard by the Supreme Court that could set an important precedent about site licences.
Enjoy the issue!
