Selling a piece of my garden.

My neighbour wants to buy 70sq metres of my garden for an allotment, any idea of selling prices?

  • Ask your local estate agents. Personally I would advise extreme caution - my neighbour sold off the bottom of his garden to "developers", and it transpires that he received less than the drop in his properties' value. What may start as an allotment, could quickly become a building plot with planning permission. Unless you have no other choice, I would advise you to hold on to your land.

  • Sorry - must disagree with armanleg. When you sell land there will be a contract of sale. You can include in that restrictions on what may be done with or on the land. I agree it's wise to be ultra careful - and not rely on verbal assurances - your neighbour may sell his house and without those written restrictions you will have little recourse against new planning permission except via the niormal planning process.
