Private Client analysis: The mobile homes legislation provides a complex sui generis legislative framework regulating the relationship between the owners of mobile home parks and individual home owners. Difficult questions can arise on the death of a mobile home owner as to succession and/or whether the value of the mobile home can be realised for the deceased’s estate. This appeal to the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber), which is necessary reading for all estates practitioners and those advising mobile home park owners, analyses the statutory provisions applicable on death and highlights the dangers of the deceased’s Will not including appropriate provisions dealing with the mobile home and of disposing of the home without the benefit of the contractual agreement which permits it to be stationed on the mobile home park. Written by Guy Adams, barrister, at New Square Chambers.
