The holiday park sector covers a wide range of holiday and temporary accommodation types, from touring caravans up to caravan holiday homes and lodges. Although there is less regulation for holiday park owners than there is in the residential sector, there are still numerous legal issues which the owners of holiday parks will have to deal with.
It is therefore important for holiday park owners to take specialist advice to ensure that they know their legal rights and responsibilities, and avoid making costly mistakes.
