Should I get planning permission?

I want to sell a detached property in a popular area which is on a large plot. It is run-down and other people have knocked down similar properties and built new ones. Would it give me a better return to get planning permission and sell or should I sell as it stands?

  • Always check with your local planning office before undertaking any structural improvements.

  • May I suggest that you try to do informal tenders. Ask your local agent to estimate its worth. Invite local builders to put in an offer, subject to planning. Set a deadline to receive offers say 1 month. Set a 6-9 month dead line to get planning. When this is granted, if it is, then exchange happens. The trouble is one builder may see a different scope to the other. Your plans may not realise its full potential. Good luck Ian
