What is the difference between all the planning permissions?
Outline planning permission (OPP) grants approval on the principle that the land can be developed, while detailed planning permission (DPP) deals with the actual design of the proposed dwelling. For info why not download our factsheet on planning.
If a plot is under offer can I still make an offer on it?
In England, an offer can still be made on a plot that is under offer. In Scotland, once a plot is under offer, no further offers can be accepted unless the sale falls through. A plot remains under offer until contracts have exchanged in England or missives have been concluded in Scotland.
Do we have to wait until the auction date to make an offer or can I buy it prior to the auction date?
Some auction lots are available for purchase prior to the auction date. If you are interested in an auction plot, please contact the auction house directly. The contact details can be found at the bottom of the plot listing.
