Owners of a caravan at a Co Antrim holiday resort claim they were told to either pay thousands of pounds for an upgraded model or leave, a report said.

A local news provider spoke to a few owners of the Causeway Coast Holiday Park in Ballycastle. They said that their licenses wouldn’t be renewed at end of next year unless their caravans were upgraded.

The new models will cost about £ 40,000, and many owners still have to pay the finance for their caravans. They believed that they could last a lot longer.

This week, owners received an email stating that: “I am writing to inform you about the site license you have with Hagans Leisure and Causeway Coast Holiday Park. We want to remind you that the site license expires 31st December 2022, and can’t be renewed after that date.”

“We are giving you as much notice possible so that we can work together to allow you to continue to be an owner at Causeway Coast Holiday Park if you choose. We can offer financing packages for all new caravans and can help you arrange an upgrade package to a 2021/2022 model caravan.”

“Alternatively, we can offer you a value to purchase your caravan back from your bank depending on your financial situation.”

Owners feel held hostage and fear losing their holiday homes worth tens of thousands if another home is not purchased.

“They have signed a 10-year lease agreement with BH & HPA. We gave them notice. We thought it was better than it sneaking up upon them at the end of next year,” Tom McNeill, manager of Causeway Coast Holiday Park said.
