Does anyone have experience of the succession regime for a French Park Home? In the UK a park home would be classed as a chattel and I would be grateful if anyone can advise whether this is the case under French law?
Do you mean a mobile home akin to a caravan, but which occupies a plot with utility connections ?
Thank you for your response.
My client describes it as a ‘chalet’ but essentially it is a de-mountable asbestos building clad in wood. The plot was leased and there are services.
Do you have a copy of the foncier rate? That would probably be conclusive in a small case as to land and or “building”. .
The notary involved in the succession over the serviced plot should really confirm the position in relation to the immovable and the contraption as a whole.
History might help, as there is a specific depreciation régime for dismountable chalets put up for exhibition purposes, which are depreciable as movables. If the chalet is still dismountable, then it might qualify as a movable. The plot with services will however be immovable.
Caveat, the Eiffel Tower was dismountable, there are bolts to prove it but the idea seems to have become somewhat fixed.
