A mobile home is housing that is built on a chassis built in a factory, transportable in one or more sections, which is eight feet or more in width. All single family mobile / manufactured homes manufactured since June 1976 must be constructed in accordance with the construction of manufactured housing and safety standards established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and must display a label certifying compliance. One of every three homes constructed in Florida is a manufactured mobile home.
Attention is drawn to the analysis of the meaning of the words “consisting of no more than two separate sections, built and designed to be assembled on site by means of bolts, clamps or other devices,” which was given in Byrne v SSE and Arun DC, 1997 QED.
Although the home park was delivered by truck in many texts, I see no requirement in Article 13 (1) (a) that the process of creating two distinct sections to take place outside the site where they are then combined. It is only necessary that the act of joining the two sections together should be the final act of the assembly.
Section 13 (a) (b) of the Act 1968 Caravan Sites must also be met. To enter the definition of the structure must be able to move by road from one place to another in its assembled state. The fact that the private drive No. 159 Victoria Avenue is too narrow to allow passage of the Home Park in its assembled state along, it is not the point. It seems to me that the structure must possess the necessary qualities, not the means of access. It is not necessary for it to be capable of being towed, but only he is capable of being transported by road.
The glass roof terrace and porch are bolted to the unit and can be removed quickly and easily. The deck seems to have been attached to the chassis remains of caravans and does not form an integral part of the structure. In my opinion, or affect the transportability of the home park meetings. I think it meets the criterion of mobility of the Act 1968.
Mobile homes against severe weather
While an F1 tornado might cause minor damage to a site built house, he could do serious damage to a factory built home; especially an older model or one that is not properly set. In addition, structural components (such as windows)are generally lower than those of site-built homes. 113 km/h winds can destroy a mobile home in a matter of minutes. Many brands offer hurricane straps as an option, which can be used to attach the house of anchors driven into the ground.
