Managing site agreements
Under current residential parks tenancy laws park managers must provide prospective long-stay tenants with seven disclosure documents, either electronically or hard copy, before any documents are actually signed.
- the proposed agreement (relating to on-site home or site only; fixed term or periodic contracts).
- an Information booklet park living
- an information sheet (usually a Q & A) on rules for pets, visitor fees, the park’s utilities and, if there is a Park Liaison Committee, its membership and functions;
- a copy of your park rules;
- a condition report - relating to the condition of the relocatable home and/or the rented site;
- a written schedule showing the amounts and types of fees and charges payable; and
- information on any restrictions or conditions that will affect the prospective tenant’s right to sell their relocatable home or assign their rights under the proposed agreement
A park manager is also responsibile for ensuring the site can be legally used as a residence as opposed to a ‘short-term’ stay, is vacant when a new tenancy is taken up, and has sufficient keys to the amenities, gates or other communal areas provided to new tenants.
