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
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.
No the park is licensed as a
holiday park and cannot be used as a permanent residential home. You
must have a permanent residence elsewhere in the UK/EEC.
The park is open for 11 months.
The closed period is the last complete week in January and the following
three consecutive weeks.
When you purchase your holiday home you will also have a licence to keep your holiday home on your chosen plot for 99 years.
Site fees will be revised each year and are likely to be in line with inflation.
The site fees cover all aspects of
the park’s maintenance, upkeep and repairs. They all include all your
water, sewage and waste collection. In addition, we will be providing an
on-site warden with 24hr alarm monitoring available.
Metered LPG, electricity, water
and mains sewage are all provided on site. There is a BT phone line
available to each lodge for phone and broadband. There is also provision
for analogue, digital and Sky TV via underground cable to a centralised
aerial and satellite dish.
You can choose from a wide range
of lodges provided by our lodge manufacturer partners. You can specify
every aspect of your lodge to suit your taste and needs, from the sizing
and external colour, to the interior layout and decoration.
There are companies that
specialise in providing finance for holiday lodges such as these and we
will be very happy to arrange an introduction to independent finance
