Mobile Homes Act 2013

New paragraph 8A (gift of mobile home)

37.New paragraph 8A mirrors the existing provision in paragraph 9 of Chapter 2 to the extent that it entitles the mobile home owner to give the mobile home and to assign the agreement to a member of his or her family. However, it removes the requirement for the site owner to approve the person to whom the gift is being made subject to a requirement that the occupier has provided the site owner with “relevant evidence” showing that the person concerned is a member of his or her family. It places a requirement on the person to whom the mobile home is gifted to notify the site owner of the gift and assignment of the agreement.  It also confers a power on the Secretary of State to make provision in regulations specifying what constitutes “relevant evidence” and specifying procedural requirements to be followed by the parties in connection with the gift of a mobile home and assignment of the agreement.
