The owner of a UMD shall not commercially sublet the said dwelling.
Insurance We require that you insure your unit against loss or damage. The Park Insurance does not cover your unit, vehicle or your personal property.
Pets No pets are allowed.
Sale of Cabin/Vans on Site
Is conditional upon:-
(a) notifying the caravan park owner in writing of the intention to sell the dwelling.
(b) informing any prospective purchaser that the sale of the dwelling voids any agreement with respect to the occupancy of the site.
(c) advising any prospective purchaser that they make their own inquiries of the caravan park owner with respect to the prospects of entering in to an Agreement.
(d) the age of a dwelling. The sale of a dwelling on site that is over twenty years of age is at the discretion of the park owner. Each unit is assessed each time it comes up for sale as to whether it may remain on site.
What fees apply upon sale?
We do not charge you a transfer fee but will charge 2.5% sales commission if you wish us to negotiate the sale of the dwelling on your behalf. A new customer is charged a $50 administration charge.
Age of Vans
It is the park owners’ policy that cabins or caravans over 20 years of age will not be allowed into the park. An offer to renew a Long-Term Holiday Site Agreement for a caravan or cabin that is over twenty years of age that is already on the park is at the discretion of the park owner. Each time that a unit comes up for sale we inspect it to decide if it is able to remain on site.
Waste Water - Non-Sewered Sites Not all sites are connected to the sewer system. Some are on a sullage system. We recommend use of the sinks in the BBQ area to wash dishes. Later connection to the sewer system is dependent on the sites location. (Seek advice from the Office)
