What is a modern residential park home?
The modern park home lifestyle is becoming ever popular as it offers peacefulness, a secure place to live and a welcoming, active community of like-minded people. However, there are still misconceptions about the ins and outs of the lifestyle, and what these modern single-story dwellings actually are!
A residential park home is a detached bungalow-style home, usually located within a private development. They are manufactured off site by UK-based park home manufacturers and then placed on a plot within the site that is owned privately or by a local authority. When buying a park home, you will own the home itself and lease the land it sits on. Effectively you rent the pitch from the site owner and pay a ground rent fee, or estate charge. These are typically paid monthly and can vary from £100 – £260, with Council Tax normally Band A or B.
