Park Home Surveys

Our bespoke, specialist survey reports have been designed specifically for anyone purchasing, or already owning a park home or luxury holiday lodge.

A survey is recognised for being an essential part of purchasing a traditional home, but it is equally, if not more essential for park homes. This is because park home purchases do not require the traditional conveyancing process that a standard property purchase requires which identifies legal and environmental issues prior to completing your purchase. Park homes can last a lifetime, however if not maintained can have a significantly reduced lifespan, especially within coastal locations such as Devon and Cornwall. Oxidisation (rust) can cause significant structural defects to a park home, along with harsh weather conditions causing water penetration through the external finishing of the park home construction. Not all serious defects are obvious and if not identified can cause a money pit for you as the new homeowner.

Our specialist surveys are undertaken by RICS qualified surveyors who have a depth of local and construction knowledge. Initial desktop research establishes any environmental risks such as flooding and crime rates within the area, as well as advising on guaranties and legal paperwork that you should request prior to completing your purchase.

Our Park Home Survey inspection can then take place which includes a comprehensive inspection of the plot, outbuildings, park home chassis, footings, external cladding, the roof, windows and doors. The inspection will then include an internal inspection that includes a comprehensive damp check throughout the property, a condition inspection of the internal doors, fixtures and fittings is then undertaken.

 

The inspection will also include a general site overview which will take into consideration any shared facilities and access roads. The usability and condition of the site facilities is important as sites will increase maintenance/service charges based on the available facilities, therefore it is essential you know what you are paying for prior to completing the purchase.

Once the inspection has been complete a detailed matter-of-fact report will be produced incorporating an easy to read traffic light system, indicating the severity of the defect or maintenance issues found. These will be accompanied with supporting photographs and supporting documents.
