Why Buy Land at Auction

There are several reasons why people buy land - including land investment, building land for sale, property development or for a self build home. Some people also look at investing through land auction because it is considered that the residential property market is overheated and because of the government's housing proposals to "concrete over" the greenbelt.

Land with Planning Permission

Every house that is built in the UK needs planning permission. When looking to purchase land or a building plot  there are three basic scenarios in terms of planning permission: outline, detailed and full (although remember that planning permission is sometimes not granted at all). Before proceeding to purchase land, it is vital to establish with the local authority that they will ultimately allow you permission to bring your plans to fruition. Otherwise there is no purpose in buying it in the first place.
