It will be important to check whether the agreement refers to a separate charge for utilities. If this is the case it may state that any charge in respect of electricity, gas, water, telephone and other services should be proportionate to the use by the home owner; in other words a pro-rata calculation.
Is there anything else that a resident/site owner should be aware of?
Sometimes the agreement may expressly provide that the pitch fee includes utility charges, for example sewerage charges. If the agreement does not expressly make provision for such a charge, the site owner would not be able to recover any amount towards sewerage charges within the pitch fee.
