Lease would expire, ownership reverts to landlord (probably the freeholder, or someone with a longer lease).

I'm afraid that's the best shot of the chalet itself we have (not taken for this purpose, hence my being in the shot!). I also have these shots of the site though (the views either side of the chalet)

Well that's the date the lease expires so the site owners will either renew the lease or demolish them I guess (although I would be surprised if they don't pay out some kind of compensation in this case). Anyone viewing will be going via the site owners anyway so can ask them for further info.

As for age, the insurance cert says approx 1975 for year of manufacture

What site is it located on and do you have a link? Interested in this but the £2000 a year fees sounds a bit excessive unless the facilities are good. What is the gas and electric situation? Do you have to pay through the site or is it your own contract with utilities company?

The ground rent and insurance (combined) cost is currently £2,019 a year. There is also council tax to pay, and water and electricity (there is currently an old 50p electricity meter installed - this will prob need converting, but my parents were happy enough just putting an old 50p through each time as the bill comes from the site owners anyway).

Bit confused re your comment about not selling a chalet...it is for sale, not for rent. The deal is that whoever buys it owns the chalet, but the ground underneath it still belongs to the site owners (hence the ground rent). Bizzarely enough, it does state in the contract that you can move the chalet elsewhere if you wish!!

It is on Nant-y-Glyn Holiday Park. There is more info on this website: http://www.northwales-holidays.co.uk/nant_y_glyn/index.htm

although these ones will be in better condition as they're the professionally rented out ones, with central heating, showers/baths etc. The site itself only has a small children's play area and field for dog walking, but it is very close to the shops, beach, railway, motorway, zoo, park etc.

There is no gas in our chalet, so not sure how that would work if it was to be installed. The elec bill comes from the site owners so I imagine they have a bulk deal for all the chalets. I doubt you would be able to sort out your own supplier.

hi, very interested. Could you tell me what the site is called please. Also, is it useable as it is? Cheers, Wayne.

Great - I didn't anticipate so much interest on here! The site it's on is Nant-y-Glyn Holiday Park. There are more details here plus contact details for the site owners if you have any general questions that I can't answer.

The chalet is definitely usable as is, although it does need modernising a little, especially if you are thinking of renting it out. There is currently no hot water (although not really needed as there is no bath/shower) and the old elec meter probably should be converted in case someone ever loses the old 50p piece!

My parents used it every weekend during the season and I stayed there myself in September. We are having to sell as my dad passed away recently and my mum does not drive. Because of that our furnishings etc. are still there (and free to whoever takes it) but obv some of that will need binning!

Shouldn't your council tax be partially exempt if you're not occupying it for the majority of the year?

Yes, the period of exemption for the current bill is 01/11/07-20/03/08.

I used to police colwyn bay and surrounding areas until a couple of months ago on response. I can honestly say that I dont recognise this place, which is a good thing as it means Ive never been there!
good luck with your sale

Yes, that's is basically. We're looking for £2000 ono to actually buy the chalet, then it's £2000 per year for the ground rent and insurance (paid to the site owners). The site is officially open from March until the end of October but you can go there to work on it etc. in the winter. I think they just turn off the water supply for the chalets over winter so people can't actually 'live' there all year round.

I think most of the other owners are oldish but we've never had any trouble with them and don't think they're particularly nosey, noisy or anything like that. There are always new faces with the rented chalets but have never had any trouble with those guys either.

There should be no problems dog-wise as it's your own place, although you may need to keep it on a lead while walking round the site because of other dogs there. We have always used those spiral stick-in-the-ground things so our dogs could stay out in the garden, and some people have put small fences up to keep their (smaller) dogs in.

:? He's already had answers to those questions and asked more about pets, not your sale so I don't see why him asking about something quite expensive matters so much.
