Rebecca Evans, Minister for Housing and Regeneration
I am pleased to announce the publication of the summary of responses to the consultation on the commission rate payable on the sale of a park home. I have also published the independent review of financial information from site owners.
There is a clear and consistent divide between the views of residents and park owners, with most residents supporting the reduction or abolition of the commission paid, whilst all site owners wish to see it retained at the current maximum rate of 10%.
The summary outlines the next steps following this extensive exercise. Following consideration of the views and evidence presented, I am setting out my intention to begin a phased reduction of the commission rate over a period of time.
I also intend to take forward a range of proposals designed to support good management in the sector and to ensure that those buying and selling park homes have access to clear, consistent information to support their decision making.
I will make an oral statement in due course.
The summary of responses and financial review are available here:
