Rent or own?

This page explains how you can work out your rights if you're faced with eviction from a mobile home. Your rights will depend on whether you rent or own your mobile home.

I rent my mobile home

Your eviction rights will depend on the kind of tenancy you have. Go to the page on renting a mobile home to find out which kind of tenancy you have.

Once you know what kind of tenancy you have, you can go to the relevant eviction page:

If you rent a mobile home on a protected site and you think that the site owner is trying to evict you from the site, go to the page on eviction from a pitch.

The important points

  • If you rent your mobile home your rights if you're being evicted depend on the type of tenancy you have, assured, short assured, regulated or common law.
  • If you own your mobile home, your rights if your landlord wants to evict you depend on whether the site that your pitch is on is protected or unprotected.
