FAQ's about holiday home ownership

Take a look at our FAQ’s below to find some of the answers you may be looking for..

Do we have to find our own finance?

No, Park Leisure works in partnership with a number of major lenders including Santander and Black Horse Finance (part of the Lloyds Banking group).

Our sales teams are on hand to discuss financing options and arrange for quotations upon request.

Can I move my holiday home onto your park?

If you are an existing caravan owner on another park but are unhappy with your current location, we will happily consider the relocation of your current holiday home to a Park Leisure park.

A full appraisal of your current holiday home will be required and a full move-on quotation be supplied (including charges for disconnections, collection, transportation, delivery and re-connection)

Alternatively we can also offer a quotation to part exchange your holiday home with us, and start afresh. Please feel free to contact your chosen park who will be delighted to discuss further, you can find a list of our parks here.

I already own a holiday home at another holiday park, will I be able to part-exchange to a holiday home you have on your park?

Absolutely. We will always happily consider a part-exchange, so please bring specific details of the holiday home you own with you when you visit the park so that we can give you an indication of the allowance we will give towards your new purchase

Will you part exchange my tourer?

Yes, if you've decided to upgrade from touring home to static we'll work out a part exchange deal specifically for you. Just speak to one of our on-park team members for more details.

What are my payment options?

Simply put, you can either purchase your holiday home outright or pay a deposit and finance the rest of your holiday home. Park Leisure works in partnership with a number of major lenders including Santander and Black Horse Finance (part of the Lloyds Banking group). Our sales teams are on hand to discuss financing options and arrange for quotations upon request.

What are site fees and how much do they cost?

You might see site fees advertised whilst researching your perfect park home experience and you may wonder what this cost entails. Site fees are an additional cost, but an important one. Site fees cover essential works and services to maintain your holiday experience and high standards you’d expect around the park. These can vary by park, as can the elements they cover but as a guide they usually include water, rates, maintenance team support, warranty and gardening/manicured lawn service. They also cover things like park landscaping, street lighting, park security, and refuse and gas bottle collection. Site fees very from park to park, but start from as little as £3,350 right up to £8,950, remember, when comparing site fees our parks are open the full 12 months for you to enjoy.

Can I bring my pet?

All of our holiday parks are extremely pet-friendly. We have dedicated dog walking areas at all of our parks, and many include dog washing facilities and areas within bars and restaurants where you can bring your four-legged friend along. Many of our current owners also choose to bring cats, birds and rabbits to their holiday home, ask our team of experts for more information about brining your pets to our parks.

How can I reserve my holiday home?

You can book a free park visit to come and sample life as an owner for a day. You can speak to your team about any questions you may have and they can through all the details you need. If you’re in love with the lifestyle (we’re sure you will be!), you can put down a deposit to secure your holiday home of choice.

Do you allow subletting?

Some of our holiday parks run sublet schemes, where others may not, it can be a useful way of generating income and make holiday home ownership more affordable for you. Many parks also have a sublet management service that will take the effort out of subletting for you. You can expect a charge for any sublet service to cover managing holiday bookings, cleaning and linen changes, however this fee is normally taken as a deduction from the holiday booking with no upfront charge to you. Contact our park teams to find out more.

Are your parks residential?

Although we operate a 12 month season, no, you can’t live on a a Park Leisure holiday park permanently. You must have a main address as your permanent residence, which your holiday home cannot be. Strictly speaking, your holiday home should be for recreational and holiday purposes.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy countless trips away — but it’s often not in a holiday park’s remit to allow permanent residence. If you did so, you’d most likely be in breach of your license agreement.

What bills do I have to factor in?

As well as paying for your holiday home, you must also consider ongoing site fees, rates and insurance. Our team will be able to give you quotes and estimates to ensure you’re aware of all fees before committing to a purchase. There’s also seasonal optional charges to consider such as draining down and external holiday home cleaning.

Will my holiday home come furnished?

All of our brand new holiday homes come with a dress kit including furniture and built-in electrical appliances. We may run specific promotions throughout the year where you can get soft furnishings included in your purchase, speak to our expert sales teams on your viewings to find out what offers are available.
