Thread Name: Static Caravan, Anyone live in one?
Subject: RE: Static Caravan, Anyone live in one?
In the UK there can be charges and regulations which put up the cost of living in a static caravan - such as the 'taking down the fence' charge for getting one onto or off the site, 'letting tradesmen in' charge for not using the owner's family for installations and repairs, 'not being burgled' charge for when you are absent for a weekend - though of course they have other names on the bills.

When you sell the thing you can get a massive bill for 'making good the plot' plus a request for part of the proceeds, so you really do need to check what the regualtions are, and be sure that the person you are taken to see to get a residant's opinion isn't the manager's auntie.
