Static caravan sales are a big rip-off
TO me the biggest rip-off in Britain today is the exchange of ownership of seaside second-hand static caravans.
To my mind both parties sign a type of form confirming old owner to new owner. This, I presume,
is done without a solicitor or lawyer present to witness these signatures. Is this legal?
I have been reliably informed the “change-over” fees range from £1,500 to over £,2000. What! Am I missing something here; being too picky?
I would love to see a breakdown of how this money is distributed by the site owners, not forgetting they also charge extortionate yearly rates plus electric meters are being installed for next season. I won’t be holding my breath! After all, a van is only a furnished tin shed on wheels set on a patch of grass on a (once) farmer’s field.
Is there no regulator to monitor the running of caravan sites? If not, then there should be. PS: I am not a caravan owner. J A Shaw Clive Crescent Kimberley
