What is a residential park home?
A residential park home is a detached, usually single storey property located within a private estate or resort, such as Away's Glendevon Resort, perfect if you're around your 50s. What makes a residential park home unique is that it is a moveable, or 'mobile' home. Park homes usually contain a kitchen, living room, bedroom/s, and bathroom. By purchasing a park home, you own the home itself, but not the land it sits on, so a site fee will be applicable. When you buy a park home with Away Resorts, you don't have to deal with various estate agents, as our team of experts are here to help guide you through the process from start to finish and answer any questions you may have.
Can you get a mortgage on a residential park home?
No, it is not possible to get a mortgage on a residential park home, but you may be able to explore private finance options to help fund your purchase.
Do you pay council tax on residential park homes?
Yes, you will have to pay council tax on a residential park home as it is your main residence. This is different when purchasing holiday homes and lodges for occasional use because they are not acting as your main residence and so you do not pay council tax on them. Ask us about our council tax bands when buying your residential park home and we can provide all the expected living costs.
How long do residential park homes last?
You can expect your residential park home to last at least 80 years, and much longer with proper maintenance. Away Resorts residential park homes are all built with long-life materials, come with a 10 year structural warranty and are built to exceed British Standard 3632.
Can you live in a park home all year round?
Yes, the beauty of our residential park homes is that they become your main residence and you can live in them all year round. This differs from purchasing a holiday home for leisure use, which cannot become your main residence all year round.
Are park homes freehold?
No, residential park homes are not freehold, and they are not leasehold either. This is due to the mobile homes act 2013 which states that the land a park home stands on remains the sole property of the landowner. When you buy a park home, you do own the park home outright, but the land is not included in the price.
Do park homes need an EPC (energy performance certificate)?
No, park homes do not need an EPC as they are exempt from needing one.
Are park homes warm in the winter?
All of our residential park homes are fully insulated and have their own boiler and central heating system, so you'll be warm and cosy throughout the colder winter months.
