Welcome to the brand new website of the PARK HOME RESIDENTS ACTION ALLIANCE (PHRAA) which, together with its sister site "PHRAA NEWS" are unique in that they are the ONLY truthful, no-nonsence, source of essential park/mobile home information available anywhere to anyone considering selling up their bricks and mortar family homes and investing their hard earned life savings in the purchase of a park/mobile home in which to spend their retirement years. This vital information is the ongoing result of years of 'raw' and often horrifying experience, which includes the criminal exploitation of 60,70, 80 even 90 year old park home owners, available anywhere else either online or in print.
"thephraa.website" and "PHRAA NEWS" websites are produced exclusively for residential park home owners and prospective buyers by park home owners and totally unlike other others, the information available is completely open to everyone and anyone to view and download, FREE OF CHARGE!
The PHRAA website is packed with vital and fully up to date information, which besides exposing the latest scams being used by UNSCRUPULOUS PARK OWNERS/OPERATORS (UPO's) against their residents, also contains the latest news, comments, informative feature articles, warning bulletins, latest Government (DCLG) regulations, plans, consultations etc., advice on buying park/mobile homes and the veryday park home lifestyle problems frequently resulting from.
What it DOES NOT contain is any form of park/mobile home advertising, therefore cannot be infuenced by any form of industry money, power or being obliged to conform to any industry dictated censorship or restrictions as to what we can publish.
PHRAA is unique among other existing national park home Residents Associations/ organisations, purporting to stand up for residents rights, in that PHRAA does not, never has, asnd never will, accept any form of payment/sponsorship from any company, individual, organisation that has any connection whatsoever with the Park Home Industry. This policy ensures that the PHRAA organisation can rightfully claim to be truly independent, therefore totally dedicated to working exclusively to improve the welfare of all park home/mobile home owners without having to refer to those holding the purse strings, before speaking out. PHRAA firmly believes that where the subject of industry sponsorship of any kind is concerned,..... "he who pays the piper calls the tune"!
We really must sincerely apologise to the many thousands of loyal PHRAA followers for any inconvenience caused by the sudden disappearance of the original main PHRAA website, but due to unknown technical problems completely beyond our control, having been online since PHRAA was launched in 2002, without any warning suddenly disappeared from view. (treading on too many toes perhaps?) Desperate calls to our then website host did not provide a solution.
As we had experienced ongoing problems with the site over the past couple of years, which meant we were unable to update the information contained, we were left with no alternative but to scrap www.phraa.co.uk and have replaced it with a brand new version www.thephraa.website. Unfortunately, this problem has occurred at a particularly bad moment for the PHRAA Team in that the orginal website, at the time it mysteriously disappeared was just short of achieving 1 Million hits. As it was the last actual number of hits recorded totalled 907786 as of November 2014. More than all the other national residents organisations put together!
Please rest assurred that this new PHRAA website will be even more informative as previously, but may take a little time to build up the same quantity and quality. Unfortunately, as PHRAA , to preserve its total independence, does not accept sponsorship from any sector of the trade side of the Park Home Industry, (Park owners, insurance companies, etc.,) as do certain other park home owners organisations, we do not possess the financial resources to employ the clever website hosts they have at their disposal, which means that our site may not be as posh as theirs. In the meantime much of the latest news is still available free to view and download by clicking on our siter site PHRAA NEWS. www.parkhomesphraanews.co.uk The PHRAA ONLINE MAGAZINE aimed at existing park home/holiday caravan/lodge owners and potential buyers. Thanks to all our friends, PHRAA Members and readers for your patience. To those PHRAA adverseries who have long standing issues with PHRAA's policy of "TELLS IT AS IT IS" and not "HOW THEY WOULD HAVE EVERYBODY BELIEVE IT IS" Look out PHRAA is back online! And is not going away again.
