Are there any monthly charges?
While you will own your home, you will need to pay a pitch fee to the site owner. Usually, this is paid monthly, but in some parks, it may be paid annually. You will also need to pay your council tax (usually Band A) and utility bills which are minimised due to the energy efficiency and insulation and heating systems used in modern park homes.

Can I leave a park home in my will?
Yes, your park home is your own property and can be left in your will as part of your estate. Those who inherit your home will be able to move into it if they are eligible to, or they can sell it, with 10% of the selling price paid to the park owner.
