You could look at a Cosalt Balmoral like the one I have for sale at Patrington Haven which is an 11 month site. It has a separate lounge and kitchen, also with a door leading from the kitchen to the corridor.

Had a look at a great van today for sale privately on a site is asked the owner how much the transfers fee was and was fine with it then phoned the site owner about the ground rent that was fine but the site owner had decided to double the transfer fee so the owner of the van didn't get his sale.

One this particular park the buyer pays the change over fees. It was 3.500 then the site owner put it up to 6000. That is naughty.so I walked away.

On Mersea Island Essex where we were, it is ParkDeanResorts site.

They currently charge 15% commission + vat so 18% ( of the transacted sale price ) normally paid by the SELLER.

We actually sold back to park so it was not applicable...don't know if the comm % is same for all PDR sites.
