The first step – and arguably the most important decision you will make – on your self-build journey is finding and buying the plot on which you will build your dream home. Unfortunately, there is no secret pathway and it is very rare to find the perfect plot that ticks all the boxes on your wish list.
So, keeping an open mind, and being prepared to compromise on certain aspects that aren’t critical to your plans is sensible. We’ve written a dedicated Blog offering detailed advice and guidance on how to start your search – click here to read on.
Even when you’ve found a potential site that ticks sufficient boxes and meets planning guidelines, there are still many other factors that need to be considered to ensure it is financially viable for a self-build. Factors such as access, provision of utility services, ground conditions and possible restrictions within the Title Deeds could all scupper what looks like a sound site. Finally, if you’ve found what looks like a suitable site, always seek expert advice before making any form of commitment. Even on the most straightforward sites, planning approval is never a certainty.
