  1. Just trying to get a handle on the actual savings in the real world through self-build CIL exemption and zero rated VAT. What % of your overall budget was saved through the VAT recovery and exemption from CiL? I'm not after a number - jus an approx %. My guestimate something of the order of 2-5% on a normal project. Cheers Ferdinand
  2. I am a bit confused and hoping someone can shed some light on a title deeds query. The CIL form 7 requires title deeds to be submitted. The land registry only has information regarding the bungalow that we demolished, and also for the land at that same location. It notes the presence of our new house (in that the name of the house is noted - new name, different to the old bungalow name). But there is no "information available". Do we need new title deeds to reflect our new house? If so, how do we go about that? I know several self builders have done similar knock down and self build so am hoping for some expert advice. Thanks
  3. Hello I submitted my CIL forms 2 weeks ago. Does anyone know how long the LPA take to respond to this as I can't do anything until they do. I know I still need to submit a commencement CIL when I do start, but I have some pre-start conditions which I don't want to sort out until I have the initial response. thanks in advance Jill
  4. We have just completed on the purchase of our plot ? which has detailed PP dating back to early 2018. This was prior to the CIL, and in response to a written enquiry the council have told us that provided what we build is no larger than the building that has PP, and provided we are only making a minor amendment to the PP, the lack of CIL will continue to apply (it is not CIL exempt so much as CIL simply did not exist at the time of this PP). We need to clear the land of arsenic (one of the PP conditions) and would like to commence that work straight away, but we have not yet submitted a minor variation application. I'm concerned that clearing the arsenic might constitute commencement of work, although as it is relation to the existing PP this should not cause us to become liable for CIL. I use the word should advisedly! Any advice? Cheers M
  5. Hi my husband and are building 2 properties in our back garden and after 3/4 years of planning applications, buying 3 garages adjacent to our garden, various legal issues, we finally have planning permission and we are ready to start! However, although we submitted a CIL exemption form in January 2020 (our son is buying the land and building one of the properties) we are still awaiting a decision. We have had to resubmit the forms due to MMA but still after us emailing and calling, we have not heard back. How long is reasonably ‘Practicable’, surely 5 months even despite covid 19 is unreasonable? The builder we wanted to use is on standby but cannot wait much longer before securing another job that he can start immediately. We are at a standstill when we could have been clearing the site whilst not at work. Frustration levels are through the roof! Nicky and Leigh
  6. Hi all , not sure if this is the right place for this post but I have a potentially costly problem which I'd like a bit of advice on please. I built 2 large sheds within PD limits but then the PA told me that PD rights had previously been withdrawn so would I please apply for retrospective PP. I duly sent in the form but they then hit me with a CIL form because the total EXTERNAL area is more than 100m2. I looked up the regs and they should be using internal area but that's an easy issue to sort out I guess. The total area of the two sheds is 105M2, one is a games room for my young children and the other is divided into 3, a workshop, store and sitting area. Question - the charge looks like about 18k in our area and this is totally ridiculous for these structures - what to do? Regards, Peter

  8. May be of interest. (Assuming half to two-thirds is from residential development, this is 20k or so per new build house). Source: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/685301/Section_106_and_CIL_research_report.pdf
  9. hi I am sue. My sister and I are planning to convert her large house into 3 flats so as to sell two, pay off her mortgage and for her to live in the third. She has claimed and received a self build exemption for one flat but my research suggests she will not be able to supply any of the 3 forms of evidence required at the end of the self build ( vat letter, self build warranty or self build mortgage) as none of those seem to be available for conversion of a house into 3 flats... has anyone had any experience with this? The Cil is about £20,000 and is making us think twice about whether the project is viable.... love to hear from anyone as this self build exemption looks like a nightmare. thanks sue
  10. A bit of advice needed here please. We are completely new to self build and progress has been slower than we hoped. Planning permission for "demolition of existing house and garage and building of new house and garage" has just been granted. We are just considering what to do first. We are thinking about knocking down just the garage to start with. This should allow us to dig to locate our utilities (still haven't found them so resorting to a digger), and then put our static caravan in without covering over said utilities (only one potential site for the caravan). Then we can move onto demolishing the house afterwards. If we do this, we assume our build will "start" as the demolition is noted on our permission. Is this correct? We plan to sort out the CIL with the LA before we "start". But do we need to have a building control inspector involved? Do we need any building regs stuff done before demolition? Site insurance? Or is all that just for the building phase? Anything else to consider at this stage? Thanks everyone.
