    Hi Colsar. Welcome to FUN. :thumb:

    The habitation check is an annual check, carried out on the habitation part of your MH.
    It should check the integrity of the bodywork, ie, check for water ingress (damp), as well as the integrity and safety of the gas and electrical systems, (12v and 240v).
    It should also cover the manufacturer's fixtures and fittings, etc.

    See here for more detail

    HTH,

    Jock.
