Do I need an EPC to sell a Mobile home? And the answer is NO!
If you selling a traditional brick-built residential property, you would have to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
The rules are slightly different for park homes. While some people prefer to know about energy ratings before they buy, you don’t have to offer an EPC. So to be clear, if you are selling a mobile home, you do not have to provide an EPC.
Mobile homes are exempt from stamp duty. This is because they are not a permanent installation and can be moved. Park homes often are considered just like caravans (mobile chattels). However, there are some important and crucial exceptions that need to look at. If moving the park or mobile home requires damage to the land e.g. digging up foundations it is likely to be considered a building for the purposes of stamp duty land tax. Your buyer would do well to find a specialist solicitor who can confirm whether stamp duty is applicable. If the buying price is under £45,000 for a second property or £125,000 for a primary property, stamp duty won’t apply, anyway.
If you selling your Park home with the help of an estate agent, you will be liable to pay an agreed fee to the agent. Apart from the estate agent fee, The park owner may get up to 10% of the selling price (known as a ‘commission’) when you sell your home.

You must fill the correct form for the Notice of the proposed sale form: park homes You must inform the park owner about the sale. Transfer the pitch agreement to the new owner. You need to inform the buyer to fill in a ‘Notice of Assignment form’ so they can pay the commission to the park owner.
Do I need to have a park home valuation survey? You may hear a different answer to this question but we believe it’s a good idea to have a survey done. This will give a bit extra confidence. A survey will lay out everything you need to know in plain language.
The survey can identify areas of a home that may be at risk of flooding or damp and also help you understand the true value of your park home. The park home survey may also let you know how much you may need to spend on your home in the long run if required.
When you have found an interested buyer(s), you must supply them with certain prescribed information and documents using a ‘Buyer's information form’.The purpose of this form and the documents accompanying it is to give the proposed purchaser the necessary information to enable them to decide whether they want to purchase your home.
If you are not able to provide a document or give certain information you need to let the buyer know
why. Please have a look at the selling or gifting fact sheet.
