What legal documents are involved in buying a lodge?

There are two main documents. Firstly, there is a purchase agreement for the lodge itself. Secondly, there is a separate licence agreement entitling you to place your lodge on your chosen plot for up to 99 years. Both agreements are based on templates provided by the BH&HPA (British Holiday & Home Parks Association).

How do I go about buying a lodge at Scampston?

Once you’ve decided to purchase a lodge the first step is to secure your preferred plot with a £2,000 deposit. Then you will decide on the manufacturer and lodge model, visit their premises and specify the layout and design to suit your needs. Once that is done you confirm your order with a further deposit of 10% of the final cost. The balance becomes due 14 days before your lodge is sited at Scampston. This process generally takes around 3 to 4 months to complete from deciding to go ahead to your lodge arriving on site.
