Static caravan sales

Please could you tell me is there a maximum amount of commission that my caravan site can charge me for the sale of my current caravan to a private buyer . I’ve been told it was set by the government in 2013 at 10% but my current park owners Haven are telling me it’s 12.5 % plus vat which seems ridiculously high for doing 5 minutes of paperwork ?  This basically gives them thousands of pounds on top of their extortionate site fees. 

Regards 

Jack

    Ah, so you have discovered how Haven stays in business. I feel your pain, but I'm pretty sure I paid the same premium for their five minutes, which inexplicably took almost an hour of them wandering around out in the back of the office and telling us how busy they were. On the plus side, I got a bigger partial refund of site fees than expected, which didn't seem to match their contract. Swings and roundabouts. You'll be well rid of that bunch of clowns.
