Have you ever found yourself pondering on the option of park home living? Many homeowners across the UK have opted for this lifestyle as this growing trend continues to combat the higher maintenance and running costs of traditional bricks and mortar. But, how do you know if it is right for you?
Park homes have been around for many decades, although are often associated with holiday parks – a very different matter. Nowadays, this is no longer the case with residential parks becoming more and more popular providing a highly convenient and tranquil way of life. Here are several reasons why homeowners choose a park home:
Downsizing and Financial Considerations: The combination of single-floor layouts and comfortable spaces without excessive square footage make these homes easier to maintain and sustain, as well as safeguard for the future. Running costs are also aided by high energy efficiency due to modern developments in materials used such as CanExcel and Shicco cladding. And yes, modern park homes do come with quality double-glazing.
Community and Like-Minded Living: Over-50’s residential parks provide the opportunity and ongoing reassurance for a quieter space enjoyed by people of similar mindsets and desires. This includes that most parks are also pet-friendly.
Purchasing Journey: The upfront benefits of purchasing a park home include the exemption of stamp duty and conveyancing costs. This enables a quick transaction that can take place in just a week.
FAQ: Park homes are neither freehold nor leasehold. The home itself is bought outright, while the land it sits on is a lease, known as a pitch. The Mobile Homes Act 1983 protects the homeowner, and pitch fees paid to the residential park ensure grounds maintenance.
