Find Your 'Custom Self-Build' Plot
The Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Regulations 2016, came into force on 31st October 2016. They require relevant (planning) authorities:
a) to keep a register of people and associations wanting to build their own home/s
b) ensure that sufficient development permissions are given to meet this demand.
To achieve this many Local Planning Authorities require Estate Developers to provide ‘Custom Self-Build’ plots on their developments BUT seek to use Design Codes to retain a cohesive estate appearance.
Linked with Plot Passports, this potentially enables detailed Planning Permissions to be ‘fast tracked’ and granted within circa 28 days.
However, Estate Developers generally only build and sell their own products. They are not much interested in handling the design and build of individual homes.
To persuade them to sell Custom Build plots they need to be sure that they are protected from the risks of buyer defaults, costly discussions, negotiations and the like.
Therefore they generally prefer to sell to people they know who understand the legislation, are able to work within the Design Codes, and can help you to complete your self-build within strict time frames.
To address this situation, protect the interests of the House Developer and your need to ensure that you can secure the exemption from CIL, we have devised specialist Custom Home agreements. These ensure you get the land at cost and that you are able to provide the essential level of design and build services needed to realise your dreams.
