“Being new to the industry, OPDS have been invaluable in helping us to get our project off the ground. We are due to open Wigmore Lakes in two weeks - if we hadn't had the help and support of the Omar team we would still be wondering what to do!”

Question Two

I’m interested in buying a new park home as I like the idea of being able to specify exactly what I want but I’m not sure how it all works, also, would I buy from the manufacturer or the park?

A.  If you’re looking to buy on a park, it’s worth considering all your options; there may be the opportunity to purchase a show home, a previously occupied home or to specify an all-new home. It’s important at this stage to find out who owns and operates the park you’re interested in, the associated costs and the long-term implications of park home ownership.

If you’re looking to buy and specify a new home on a park then you would be buying from the park owner. Generally, if vacant plots are available, the park owner would take a deposit to reserve the plot.  The next step would then be to specify your new park home with the manufacturer, and if necessary, market and sell your present home.

Although manufacturers offer a range of park homes in different styles and sizes, many choose to adapt the home they have chosen to their own tastes and requirements. As each home is made individually to order, most things can be changed, from floor coverings, curtains, kitchens and bathroom suites, to tailoring the floor plan to include a study or utility room.  You could even choose to change window placement or size to make the most of a view.

When you have chosen and specified your home, the park owner would normally request a further deposit so the home can be ordered. The home would then enter the manufacturing process and once ready, would be delivered and sited.

Once the plot is landscaped and ready for you to move in, the sale would complete on your new park home and the remainder of the full balance would be payable to the park owner. It is worth noting that any warranty or aftersales issues, although the responsibility of the manufacturer, would be channelled through the park owner.
