1. The QRA must represent the interests of residents on that park.

2. Membership of the QRA must be open to all residents who own a mobile home on the park.

3. The membership of the QRA must be made up of at least 50 per cent of residents who own mobile homes on the park.
When trying to establish the percentage of residents in the QRA each mobile home is to be taken as having only one resident. If there is more than one person living in a mobile home it is possible for both of the residents to join the QRA but the individual whose name appears first on the written statement is the relevant individual for the purposes of establishing the 50 per cent.

4. The QRA must have no link to the park site owner.
In particular the park owner, any employees on the park, agents or family members of the park owner cannot be members of the QRA. This is an important condition to consider in circumstances where a resident may assist a park owner by acting as a warden on the park for example.

5. The QRA must keep an up-to-date list of its members which is open to public inspection.
It is good practice to ask members to sign a membership list to indicate their membership of the QRA.
