This content applies to England & Wales

Properties that are protected under the Mobile Homes Act 1983.

Before buying a mobile home, it is important to check whether the property is protected under the Act:

  • the home must be a caravan (see the page on the Definition of a mobile home in the section on mobile homes)
  • the site on which the caravan is parked must have planning permission for year round residential occupation in order to qualify for protection.
