Has anyone got any dealings in this?
Bit of background, the wife's grandfather passed away last year and his property sits in a fair bit of land, not talking acres but if done right could fit a good few new builds on it or numerous flats. As the property sits, it has a large 3 bed bungalow on it 2 very large double garages, they all would probably get demolished and rebuilt as they do need some areas worked on and is single brick as it is old.
So silly question and tried searching the planning portal, do you need plans to get planning permission?
What are costs in getting plans? Is it as simple as paying an architect many many pounds to come up with plans to submit to planning dept. What else is there? We do not think there will be issues getting permission as the land sits in heart of a village with new builds.
What are timescales?
That being said property is worth in region of £400k on a really good day as it currently stands with no planning permission. How much as a guess does planning add? I know that is an open question as it will be based on what is finally planned. But if it may only add £50k and planning fees come in at say £25k then it might not be worth the hassle and wait.
We we still have to get the property valued properly for all aspects as we had valuation done quickly for probate.
The intention is to sell the property with planning and the estate gets split 2 ways. My wife obviously would rather her and her family benefit rather than some developer by selling it for the max they can get.
