 why should you join a...

Park Home Association?

National Association of Park Home Residents (NAPHR)

The National Association of Park Home Residents

(NAPHR) are a totally voluntary group established

in 1982 that offer advice to park home residents on

matters relating to Mobile Home lifestyle, buying a

home, forming a Residents Association, the Mobile

Homes Acts, Written Statements, etc. They operate

nationally and have a committee of eight members

located in various locations such as West Sussex,

Cornwall and Scotland.

Membership of the National Association of

Park Home Residents (NAPHR) is open to Residential Park Home Owners on Permanently Licensed

Parks, excluding anyone with connections to the

site owner at an annual subscription rate of £5.00

per home. This entitles you to access their telephone advice line and/or written replies if you send

copies of correspondence (QRA’s or Associations

with more than 50% of owner occupied homes can

join all their members for £3.00 per home).

They endeavour to deal with most enquiries via

the telephone or by letter, however park visits can

be arranged where necessary or you can arrange a

visit to their headquarters in Colwyn Bay.

NAPHR have been involved with the Park Home

Working Party (PHWP) group for many years seeking

changes to Mobile Homes Legislation. The PHWP

group consists of residents representatives like

NAPHR and representatives of the Park Home Industry, Council Officials and MP’s.

January 2005 saw the first fruits of their efforts

to help residents when five new pieces of legislation

were introduced which it was hoped would deter site

owners withholding their consent to you selling your

home, improved protection from harassment, removal of the five year term regarding the condition of

your home and the right for prospective purchasers

of new homes to have a copy of the written statement 28 days prior to an agreed sale.

To find out more about their work and current

campaigns head to their website.
