Changing residential park ownership

Changing park owners

A new park owner must formally advise the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy within 28 days of a change in information previously provided to the Department.

A park owner must complete a Form 10 Information for record of residential parks and give the Department information about their residential park, to:

  • provide information about a new or existing residential park
  • or
  • update information previously provided about the residential park.

If you decide to give up ownership of your residential park, your successor will get the same benefits and be subject to the same obligations that you had under the existing site agreements.

A new park owner must formally advise all home owners within 14 days of:

  • the new owner's name and business address
  • where to make future rent payments.

Changing park managers

If you have appointed a new park manager, you must formally advise each home owner of the manager's appointment, and the manager's name and business address.

You must also give notice to each home owner if you terminate a park manager's employment.

You must also advise the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy within 28 days following the change and provide contact details for the new park manager.

Important

Failing to formally advise the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy within 28 days of a change in information previously provided to the Department, is an offence under the Manufactured Homes (Residential Parks) Act 2003. Penalties apply.
