What to think about when buying a Static Caravan?

  • The Park, Location Matters.
    πŸ“The park’s location is crucial. Choose a park within easy travel distance if you plan to visit regularly.
  • Assess the park’s facilities.
    β›³οΈπŸŠAre there too many or too few for your needs? Paying for unused amenities can add up, and insufficient recreational options might mean extra travel to keep the family entertained.
  • The Caravan, considerations.
    πŸ’· Think about the caravan’s price, age, features, and condition. Decide whether you want to buy new or second-hand. Many first-time buyers opt for a pre-owned model to save money and test the waters.
  • Personal fit.
    βš–οΈ Remember, it’s not just about having the best caravan; it’s about being on a park you love. Find a balance where costs are manageable, and you enjoy the lifestyle.
  • The ongoing expense.
    • πŸ€” While owning a holiday caravan is a great getaway, consider ongoing costs.
    • 🧐 Pitch Fee: Determine the pitch fee and what it covers.
    • ⚑️ Utilities: Check if electricity and water are included and how they are billed.
    • πŸ§‘β€πŸš’ Insurance: Find out if insuring the holiday home is straightforward.
    • πŸ“ˆ Additional Costs: Inquire about any other charges and when they need to be paid.
    • πŸ›‘ The Importance of a Written Agreement. Since holiday caravan owners aren’t covered by the Mobile Homes Act (1983), ensure you have a written agreement covering pitch fees and tenure.
  • Clarity is key.
    πŸ”‘ The agreement should be easy to understand. Don’t rely on a handshake; get everything in writing to confirm your rights and responsibilities before making any payments.

  • Long term commitment.
    πŸ’ Buying a holiday caravan is a long-term commitment, so carefully review the agreement governing your pitch occupation. Understand every detail and get a copy of the contract for thorough review before finalising your decision.
