Thought I'd post this to alert others! We were about to buy a new house, we had made it clear that we needed to park a motorhome there. We were assured that whilst caravans and boats were not allowed, motorhomes were OK. When our solicitor saw the contract she said not so. The contract did just refer to caravans, but it appears that the caravan act 1960 (amended 1968) section 29 is the key definition. It defines a caravan as : “caravan” means any structure designed or adapted for human habitation which is capable of being moved from one place to another (whether by being towed, or by being transported on a motor vehicle or trailer) and any motor vehicle so designed or adapted, but does not include— (a)any railway rolling stock which is for the time being on rails forming part of a railway system, or (b)any tent; So be warned. Any legal things that refer to caravans also include motorhomes. Thought this might alert others not to fall into the trap I nearly fell into!
