can you tell me who regulates/inspects residential/holiday

Customer Question

can you tell me who regulates/inspects residential/holiday caravan sites? who does one contact about misselling of new caravans, and giving of false timescales for stays?we have a catalogue of incidents whereby our site owner has cheated and bullied and lied to us. It appears to us he can do exactly as he pleases with the threat of ...if you do not like it leave. This suits as he offers next to nothing for peoples vans , sells them on and replaces with brand new ones..money money money.
He miss sold an elderly lady a new van by telling her she could stay 12 months of the year, He later said he never said that at all.The lady has 2 witnesses but no idea how /what to do about it.
There is much more just need advice where to go for help, he has got away with this for years and needs stopped. hope you are able to point me in the right direction. thank you.

Is this a static home?

Or a contract to buy?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


static caravan purchased from site owner


11months occupancy only as licenced for holiday use.

Expert:  UK-Justice replied 4 years ago.
Thanks.

This is governed by the Mobile Homes Act 1983

It is enforced by the local Council.

If it is to do with mis-selling it would be a civil matter and as such under the Sale of Goods Act.

Goods must be:

1) fit for purpose
2) of suitable quality
3) as described

If not then you may be able to take the matter to the County Court and bring a claim.

This can be done online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk

I hope this helps.
