Park home own­ers hail new sales laws

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

PARK home own­ers have wel­comed new leg­is­la­tion gov­ern­ing the sale of their properties.

Own­ers will now be free to sell their homes on the open mar­ket. The law has been changed to pro­tect res­i­dents, who of­ten found they had no choice but to sell at a cut price to the site owner, who would then sell on at a profit.

Hous­ing min­is­ter Mark Prisk said: “For too long, some un­scrupu­lous op­er­a­tors have made res­i­dents’ lives a mis­ery, in­tim­i­dat­ing peo­ple and ma­nip­u­lat­ing the rules to turn a quick profit.

“So we’ve closed the loop­holes to root out the rogues and en­sure that those who run an hon­est busi­ness will flour­ish.”
