Steps to becoming a Park Home Owner
Buying a park home is a big decision. Location, lifestyle and choosing the right type of home are all important factors and we hope this guide will help you. Our friendly team will also be on hand every step of the way to help you and answer any questions you may have.
Location, location, location
As we all know, location is everything and at Presthope Grange, we’ve got it. Not only is it within easy access to the towns of Telford, Bridgnorth, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton but the site itself is nestled in the idyllic countryside of Wenlock Edge, sitting 1000 feet above sea level among rolling hills and picturesque woodland, perfect for walkers and county lovers alike. Presthope Grange is named after the historic railway station which was uncovered on the site, elements of which have been incorporated into the development to maintain its history and character.
Understand the costs
We have a selection of homes to suit your taste and budget. There are many benefits to owning a park home but it’s important to understand the costs before you commit. There is no stamp duty when purchasing a park home and council tax is the lowest rate at band A. There is a monthly pitch fee to cover the cost of the park’s electric gates, roads, lighting and maintenance of the communal areas and all of the current rates can be obtained from your sales advisor. Other things to consider are the running costs such as insurance, gas and electric, all of which can be predicted for you when you enquire to give you an overall picture of the costs involved.

Park Home Fact Sheet
A new Mobile Homes Act came into force in England in 2013. This increases the protection for park home owners, but placed new obligations on them to provide documentation when selling their park home. It also removes the park owner’s automatic right to approve a new owner.
Government subsequently published a number of factsheets which cover:
- Residents’ rights and responsibilities
- Park home pitch agreements
- Selling a home, and the forms that must be used
- Qualifying Residents’ Associations
- Pitch fees and other payments to site owners
