Default Selling a static.

Hi. I have a static that I may want to sell in the near future. I bought it in new in January 2008 and signed the standard BH&HPA/ NCC ltd licence agreement for 10 years+5 .
Since then, the park ownership has changed and all I have had from the new owners is a letter confirming my tenancy period. Also the 'LTD' title has been removed from the park name.
Is my licence agreement still valid under the terms of same or is it now void?
Hairy.

No idea but I'd be asking them for a letter confirming the licence or them giving you a new one.

Tree tops is the man for this one. I wouldn't worry too much try to avoid the lemming syndrome people get when a park is taken over.. they may well have some fresh ideas and investment. All the best.

Hi Maddy, Hi Bigland.
Thank you for your replies. It's not that the park has been taken over, I need to invest in a property that I am rebuilding so, sadly, The Riverdale 2 bed 36(?)X12
C/H and D/G has to go
The Park offer was an insult

the first thing would to be to look in your agreement, there is usually a paragraph about selling privately...

I hope you are able to sell privately as you will get more for it than the site may offer you...

Hi Tiamaria. Thanks for your reply. I have looked at the original agreement hence my question regarding the validity since the park changed hands. Any advise regarding this would be appreciated. Hairy.

Hi Hairy,

Caravan wise I'm no expert but.. I am a contracts manager so I understand that bit. Legally they should have spoken to you when the new owners took over and novated the contract to their name (just complete a quick contract variation to say the contract was the same but now company x was the owner instead of company y). In theory if they've not novated it, it's null and void... But this also means you don't have a contract for the plot. Realistically depending on how long ago they took over they'd argue they just hadn't got round to it, and point out as you've remained on the site and continued to pay the fees then the contract is implied. Actually getting out of something in that contract would be difficult, which is what you'd expect if the boot was on the other foot and they were for example trying to throw you off the site because you were trespassing as you had no contract to be there.

Was it something in particular you wanted to know if still applied?

Hi Bll78. Thanks for your reply. I needed to know if they still adhered to the BH and HPA/ NCC tenancy agreement that I signed at the beginning of my tenancy. I have now found out that they do but will charge me 15% () of my selling price if I sell privately. Hairy.
