How do we find a park for permanent living?
Once you have found the park home and agreed on the requirements, remember that most parks cater for retkired or semi- retired users but some parks will take families too - but do check this. Also check to see the licence of the park you want to go on is valid and that the park is for all–year living. Don’t forget when you buy a park home you own the home, but the park operator owns the land it’s on and therefore you pay a rent which covers the upkeep of the park.
Finding a park may see you wanting to get out into the countryside, a place where many parks are situated. Most are placed not too far from a village or town but if you don’t run a car, or have had to give it up, you need to check just how you can get about. Is the local public transport reliable and also run at regular times near the park? It may seem irrelevant if you have a car, but if your partner dies and you can’t drive it will make a big difference to how you enjoy your home.
Find out if the rules of the park include pets being allowed and if so, does that mean only dogs or cats? Your plot may have room for car to park at the side, but if you want to place a garage (a pre-fabricated unit) you may not be allowed, so ask the park owner first. Also most have gardens and a small shed will be permitted on most parks but again check for this otherwise a large outside container box may be the only answer.
