Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Termination by owner

4.  The owner shall be entitled to terminate the agreement forthwith if, on the application of the owner, the court—

(a)is satisfied that the occupier has breached a term of the agreement and, after service of a notice to remedy the breach, has not complied with the notice within a reasonable time; and

(b)considers it proportionate in all the circumstances for the agreement to be terminated.

5.  The owner shall be entitled to terminate the agreement forthwith if, on the application of the owner, the court—

(a)is satisfied that the occupier is not occupying the caravan as the occupier’s only or main residence; and

(b)considers it proportionate in all the circumstances for the agreement to be terminated.

6.—(1) The owner shall be entitled to terminate the agreement forthwith if, on the application of the owner, the court—

(a)is satisfied that, having regard to its condition, the caravan is having a detrimental effect on the amenity of the site; and

(b)considers it proportionate in all the circumstances for the agreement to be terminated.

(2) Sub-paragraphs (3) and (4) apply if, on an application under sub-paragraph (1)—

(a)the court considers that, having regard to the present condition of the caravan, paragraph (a) of that sub-paragraph applies to it, but

(b)it also considers that it would be reasonably practicable for particular repairs to be carried out on the caravan that would result in sub-paragraph (1)(a) not applying to it, and

(c)the occupier indicates that the occupier intends to carry out those repairs.

(3) In such a case the court may make an order adjourning proceedings on the application for such period specified in the order as the court considers reasonable to allow the repairs to be carried out.

The repairs must be set out in the order.

(4) If the court makes such an order, the application shall not be further proceeded with unless the court is satisfied that the specified period has expired without the repairs having been carried out.
