Information Pack For Prospective Purchasers Of Holiday Chalets At Lavernock Point Holiday Estate

In recent years, due to the rise in house prices in the area there has been an increased

interest in the purchase of holiday chalets from persons looking for a cheaper alternative

to purchasing a house.

Due to this it has now become necessary to inform all prospective purchasers of some

of the terms of our planning consent and the procedure involved when purchasing a Holiday


• These are strictly Secondary Holiday Homes and are to be used for the enjoyment of Holiday

and Leisure purposes only.

• The Chalet’s are all leasehold, with approx 32 years left on the lease. When the lease expires

the agreement ceases so the chalet automatically reverts back to us the landlords at no cost.

• The site is open from March 1st – December 31st. You are not permitted to use the chalets

at anytime outside of this period

• Although they may be used at anytime during this period, the “Holiday Use Only” restriction

, forbids persons using them as their main home for the 10 months and seeking accommodation

elsewhere for the remaining 2 months

• In the event of a sale this office must give its consent to any transfer.

• Due to the “Holiday use only” restriction contained in the planning conditions this company will

not give its consent to any assignment unless the buyer can provide proof of primary home

ownership by way of utility bills. These Bills need to be supplied yearly and the necessary action

will be taken against any persons who sell their main house without purchasing another after

they have purchased a chalet at their own cost

• All purchasers must sign a consent form and permission slip for us to obtain a police/credit check

on the prospective purchaser.

• Any person who sells their main residence after they have purchased a chalet will be in breach

of planning and of their lease and the necessary legal action will be taken to rectify the breach.

All our costs will be payable by the chalet owner if these actions are to be instigated.

• There are many covenants contained in the lease which must be adhered to. You are not

allowed to sublet the chalet unless you appoint our office as the sole agent. We will take

15% commission on all rents received on the owners’ behalf. There is a provision contained

allowing us to gain forfeiture of the lease in the event of any breach.

• You are advised to obtain a copy of the lease from the seller of the chalet in order to read and

understand all the conditions contained. You will be responsible for all our costs if we have to

instigate proceedings to rectify any breach.

• Each Chalet has a patio area of approximately 6ft to the front and 2ft to the sides and back.

Although some chalets have extended their patios beyond this, these areas remain the property

of the landlord at all times. This company is no longer granting the permission for any future

extensions or the erection of boundary walls storage boxes etc

• This company will not accept any mail for new tenants. This should be sent to your home address

You may consider some of the above a little harsh but this Holiday Village was designed for persons

wishing to enjoy a peaceful haven in quiet holiday surroundings and not simply as a form of cheap

housing. This company looks forward to welcome any persons wishing to purchase a chalet to be

used in the mannerr intended who is happy to conform to the above terms and rules.
