I can't offer legal advice, but do start keeping a record of all interactions with the site owners.  Keep all adverts, contracts, letters, paper work etc.  Keep a diary of all relevant events with dates and times.  Even in disputes try and comply with rules and maintain dignity and politeness as this will stand you in good stead if it goes to court.  I hope some members will soon recommend a legal service that specialises in mobile home law.  Meanwhile, you could contact the Citizens Advice Bureaux.  solicitors will normally give you a 30 minute consultation at no cost.

 

Can you post the first half of you postcode so we know roughly where you are?  Don't if you feel uncomfortable doing so.

Seek professional  legal advice before doing anything. These sites are very au fait with the law so you need to be equally well informed. 

 

Read what your contract ACTUALLY says not what you think it says (There is often a big variance )

very wise advice already given.

If you have (a) purchased a static from them, and (b) have sufficient evidence to show that what you are getting is not what you were promised, then at 11 weeks you may be in a position to reject the static and get a refund under the Sale of Goods Act (consumer rights). It will be more complicated if you have purchased via a loan or hire purchase.

As said, Citizens Advice should be able to help - if you have a good home insurance policy, then they may have a legal helpline to suggest some action, or even join Which?, which has a legal advice section.

And - have you actually asked the Park what you need to do because you are not happy?

They may already have a set procedure for this sort of thing, and pretty sure that any solicitor you go to will want to know what the Park operators said when you told them you were not happy and wanted to leave.

I note that everyone said "we were told..", "they said.."

It was probably perfectly true at the time they were told, but when management has an overhaul then the only thing that is useful is having in written down in your contract, and apparently all that was written down was 15 years.

It can be a bit of a minefield - which is why it pays to do a lot of research first.
