Have you planned ahead?

Earlier this week we were asked, via Twitter, what checks/searches we thought were most overlooked when purchasing a new house.

As we were typing out a response a headline hit, “Horrified couple discover their £500,000 dream countryside cottage will soon be surrounded by a 700-home estate - after hearing about it from a neighbour as they walked their dogs.”

Through sheer coincidence, it hit the nail on the head with the check/search we believe is most missed!

The story went on to describe how a couple injected thousands of pounds into their dream cottage. Nestled deep in the countryside, they were pleased to find that their secluded home sat between miles of green field – everything that they had wished for.

However, development company KBC Developments LLP, submitted plans to Wiltshire Council to build a 700 home village.  The devastated couple, Paul and Cheryle, were not invited to register their objections and their cottage hasn’t even appeared on submitted aerial drawings.

Sadly for them, their once idyllic haven will be now sandwiched between everything they were aiming to get away from, “neighbours, noise and street lighting.”

Here at CDS, the check that we believe is most overlooked has to be a ‘know your location planning’ which can provide your client with knowledge about future developments.

A small charge of £12.00 can make a huge difference in the grand scheme of your future living. Included within this report is a complete set of planning applications from within a 250 metre radius of the subject property. It also includes Mobile Phone Transmitters and Ofcom Telecommunication Masts. From simple residential extensions to mass developments of open land; the planning application details will be gathered and returned, securing your client peace of mind before they buy.
