Residential Parks

The Residential Parks Act 2007 (SA) covers certain types of rental agreements (known as 'residential park agreements') in residential parks.

A 'residential park' is land where a group of sites or dwellings with access to common property (for example, bathroom, laundry) are available for rent. A caravan park is an example of a 'residential park'.

A 'dwelling' is:

  • a structure designed for and capable of being used for human habitation (the structure can be fixed or moveable, but tents are not included); or
  • a motor vehicle or trailer designed for and capable of being used for human habitation.
