The Caravan Parks Act 2012 (the Act) commenced on 1 May 2012. The Act sets the legal framework that governs the rights and obligations of residents and caravan park operators in the Northern Territory.
If the caravan park is also a resort, tourist or holiday park then the Act does not apply. The only exception is for residents who have resided in the park for a period of five years or more.
The Act sets out key provisions for terminations, establishes a default agreement, sets standards for repairs and maintenance and more.
