Article 9 Sale of caravan

The resident shall make an appointment with the owner of Caravanage La Côte d’Aise before selling his caravan.

A caravan can only be sold if it is less than 15 years old and if the pitch is fully equipped in accordance with the internal regulations and after any defects to the caravan and the site have been repaired. Caravans older than 15 years may remain on the caravanage only with the express permission of the owner of the caravanage. 

The owner is free to enter into a contract for a pitch with the prospective buyer or not. Thus, the prospective buyer does NOT automatically take over the pitch rental agreement by the mere purchase of the caravan. By purchasing the caravan, the prospective buyer cannot make any claim to the use of the pitch where the relevant caravan is located at the time of sale.

The resident expressly undertakes, by signing this agreement, to arrange the sale of his caravan with the prospective buyer only through a written agreement, drawn up in duplicate, and to include the following provision:

“The new owner shall not take over the pitch of the caravan by the mere purchase of the caravan. Therefore, he will not be able by this purchase to make any claim to the relevant pitch where the caravan was placed at the time of the sale, except after entering into a new rental agreement with the owner of the caravanage.”

The resident also undertakes, before the sale agreement is finally concluded, to make an appointment with the prospective buyer with the owner of the caravanage.
