This year’s National Custom and Self Build Week will take place from 3rd-10th May and will include a wide range of events to help millions of self builders turn their self build dreams into a reality!
Building your first home can be overwhelming, and in the excitement of your self build it’s very easy to forget the small details and things you may only remember when it’s too late. If you’re building your dream home, presumably you’re hoping to stay in it for a good few years, if not for the rest of your life. So, before you start your build bear in mind these simple things:
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) was brought into effect by the Planning Act of 2008 and since then has had a detrimental and prohibitively expensive effect on self builders, as the levy on all new homes was raised by a standard charge per m2 of new development.
The demolition of a family’s ‘dream’ home has started after bungling builders built the property 6ft higher, 9ft longer and 4ft wider than the original plans stated, therefore breaching planning regulations.
The new half- million - pound dream house had been built with too many windows, an unapproved 13ft balcony and an unapproved third floor.
Would you like to live in Britain’s biggest and most expensive new built property? Well, if you have a spare £22 million, you can!
After 18 months of work on the property, the newly built mansion, situated on the exclusive ‘Billionaire’s Row’ in North London is now complete!
