Consider planning permission when looking for land for sale
When you’re looking to buy land it is imperative that, before you purchase a plot, you make yourself aware of any issues that relate to planning permission.
For instance, minor changes to the land such as putting up small fences and walls usually don’t require planning permission. However, if you’re looking to erect a brand new building on the site, you will most definitely have to submit a planning application.
Contact the local council when looking for land for sale
You can generally request free advice from your local authority on whether or not planning permission is required for a specific structure, but when you submit a planning application a fee will be incurred.
For this reason, it’s worth bearing in mind that land for sale that already has planning consent is usually more expensive. This is down to the fact that the seller has already gone to personal expense to provide the land’s new owner with the guarantee of pre-obtained planning permission.
