The Mobile Homes Act 2013, which came into force two weeks ago, gives more rights to those who live in a park home on a residential pitch.
The move came after concerns that some park home operators may be using underhand tactics to make a profit at their residents’ expense.
“I’m delighted that the Government is safeguarding park home residents in West Berkshire.
“For too long, some unscrupulous operators have made have made residents’ lives a misery, intimidating people and manipulating the rules to turn a quick profit.”
The new laws will see certain site rules scrapped and all remaining rules will be re-made in consultation with residents.
It is hoped that will prevent the possibility of site rules being used inappropriately to block sales.
There are as many as 85,000 owner occupied mobile homes on 2,000 sites across England.
