Residential park - long stay vs holiday tenants
Residential park residents (tenants) are covered by a set of specific laws. If you are simply staying at a residential park for a holiday you are not covered by the same laws, however you still have general consumer rights.
You are not covered by residential park laws if you are:
- on holiday;
- a park employee living on the premises; or
- in a retirement village (which are covered by the Retirement Villages Act 1992 – this legislation is also currently being reviewed); or
- subject to a written, fixed-term agreement entered into before 3 August 2007 (until it expires and a new contract is entered into).
You are a tenant if you have:
- rented a park site or home for three months or more;
- a periodic tenancy entered into after 3 August 2007; or
- entered into an oral agreement before 3 August 2007.
