Mobile Homes Act 2013

New paragraph A1 of Part 3 of Schedule 1: provision of information

40.New paragraph A1 makes provision about the information to be provided by an occupier (who is proposing to sell a mobile home) to the prospective purchaser and about the time by which that information must be provided. It confers a power on the Secretary of State to specify, in regulations, the documents and/or other information which must be provided. The first such regulations will be subject to the negative resolution procedure.  Where an occupier fails to comply with the duty to provide the prescribed documents and/or information within the required time, the prospective purchaser may bring civil proceedings in like manner as any other claim in tort for breach of statutory duty. These provisions will ensure that the prospective purchaser is aware of all the relevant information (including, for example, any restrictions in the site rules on who can reside on the site) and so is able to make an informed decision as to whether or not to proceed with the purchase.
