Buy with confidence

So far 2021 has been a year of major changes as far as buying a resale mobile home goes. First up is the fact that the UK is no longer in the EU, and secondly, 90% of the deciding which home to buy is now done online. Quick three-day visits to the park are not so easy to arrange these days.

That means the sale of any resale mobile home now is no longer covered by EU legislation applicable in both the UK and Spain. It also means that the one and only park visit most people make is generally to confirm what has been discovered online.

So, to assist sellers and buyers alike with the changes, we have introduced a buy with confidence package for the legal transfer of mobile and park homes in Spain. From the 1st of September 2021, we now link “Price Check” to the home listing itself and “Home Check” to the SAPA (Sale Agreement by Private Arrangement) contract.

All SAPA contracts signed by buyers and sellers now are in Spanish protected by Spanish Law, with the English version acting as the translation. All the homes we list for sale in the park are now “price checked” to assist distance selling, and all homes are “home checked” just prior to the sale completing.

Because the SAPA contract is so good in setting out the sale terms and conditions, a sale can only begin to complete after checks have been made and the home has been handed over to a third party for security with vacant possession. 

That means the SAPA contract allows buyers to buy with confidence and the vendor to sell with confidence. For the vendor, the system is perfect because they can make their plans to move knowing nothing can go wrong once all parties have signed the SAPA contract. 

Retire to Spain, residential parks.

It is important to say at this point that the “buy with confidence” package we are offering is designed to help buyers and sellers alike get the result they are looking for in a reasonable time frame. The system is not compulsory or suitable for every home in the park. 

Homes for sale within the park outside the “buy with confidence” system can still be purchased without a SAPA contract by dealing directly with the owner advertising their home. In those circumstances, the park owners have to confirm that the park contract can be transferred, which is automatic with a SAPA contract.
