Caravans Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Paragraph 8 – Sale of caravan

Paragraph 8 establishes the process for the sale of a caravan on a protected site. A caravan owner is entitled to sell a caravan and assign their residential agreement to a person approved by the site owner. The site owner’s approval cannot be unreasonably withheld and must be notified to the caravan owner within 28 days of a written request being made. If this does not occur, the caravan owner can apply to the court for an order approving a person.

The site owner is entitled to receive a maximum commission of 10% on the sale. This provision does not apply to the Northern Ireland Housing Executive in respect of the sites it provides and manages for Irish Travellers.
