The months are passing by quickly and you may be thinking about buying your very own holiday home so you can go on holiday as many times of year as you like without the added expense of flying. Take a look at some of the frequently asked questions circulating when looking to buy one of our holiday homes in Bala.
How Do I Find The Perfect Location?
The reason for the popularity in holiday home ownership is due to the easy accessibility of your home – considering you will plan to visit several times in the year. You will want to look at holiday homes that are no further than 2 – 3 hours drive from where you live.
When Can I Use My Holiday Home?
When looking at locations be sure to check the times of year in which the park is open. Many parks, like ourselves are open most of the year, however, others may just be open over the spring and summer months.
What Determines The Price of a Holiday Home?
Holiday homes all vary in price, and can vary depending on the location and also facilities that are available on the park itself. Price is also determined by the holiday home itself and its appliances, fixtures and fittings.
What Else Do I Need To Budget For?
If you are buying a brand new holiday home – one that’s just been built and is still in the factory – you will need to check whether there are extra fees included to transport your new home. Other costs include annual pitch fees, utilities (gas, water and electricity) as well as insurance.
Do I Need To Sign A Contract?
We advise not going ahead with a purchase unless you have signed a contract. It is in your own best interest to make sure you have a contract that stipulates everything so both parties can abide by the terms and conditions.
What Should Be In My Agreement?
Agreements might sound daunting and confusing however, they ultimately need to be clear to understand. It should state duration, park rules and anything else which may apply such as sub-letting, pets and park facilities.
What If I Want To Sell?
Before deciding to sell make sure you check your agreement first. The agreement should specify the transfer fee that will be applied to the selling price of the home. Selling the home to a new owner will mean transference of the agreement rights to the new owner too.
