Residency in a caravan park

Skip listen and sharing tools

There are laws around agreements between caravan park owners and residents who hire or own the caravans they live in. These laws also regulate agreements between park owners and residents who rent movable dwellings and other types of dwellings in a caravan park, residential park, or other park.

A person living in a caravan in a caravan park is a resident when they have:

  • obtained written permission from the caravan park owner to live at the caravan park, or
  • lived in the caravan park for at least 60 days without a break.

Someone is not a caravan park resident if they:

  • are staying in a caravan while on holiday
  • own a caravan in a caravan park but live somewhere else, or
  • have not signed a written agreement with the caravan park owner and have not lived in the caravan park for at least 60 days without a break.
