ES­TATE AGENTS’ COM­MENTS

Cheshire Life - - Property -

If you do have build­ings that can be de­vel­oped un­der the new leg­is­la­tion, it would be pru­dent to con­sider what im­pact the de­vel­op­ment and sub­se­quent sale of those build­ings may have on your en­tire hold­ing. If you have a ring fenced es­tate or farm, the sale of a build­ing from the cen­tre or close to it could be detri­men­tal to the over­all value of the prop­erty and may not be ad­vis­able.

How­ever, pe­riph­eral build­ings in your own­er­ship could be­come valu­able, cap­i­tal-rais­ing in­stru­ments. Take proper ad­vice be­fore launch­ing into such a pro­ject. Crispin Har­ris MRICS Direc­tor Jack­son-stops, Wilmslow 01625 540340 jack­son-stops.co.uk

In our ex­pe­ri­ence, lo­cal au­thor­i­ties in the North West con­tinue to ap­proach Class Q devel­op­ments of re­dun­dant mod­ern agri­cul­tural build­ings (that are of­ten steel­framed) with cau­tion, so it is im­por­tant to take ad­vice and give care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion be­fore mak­ing the prior ap­proval ap­pli­ca­tion. Tra­di­tional brick barns for res­i­den­tial con­ver­sion

re­main favoured by lo­cal au­thor­i­ties. Aaron Marrs MSC MRTPI, Plan­ner Strutt & Parker, Ch­ester 01244 354853 strut­tand­parker.com

You could po­ten­tially spend a sig­nif­i­cant amount of time and money on de­vel­op­ment projects, when you don’t need to, so if you are think­ing about

un­der­tak­ing such a pro­ject, whether it be a build­ing plot or an ex­ist­ing home, it is best to take ad­vice from a pro­fes­sional es­tate agent to de­ter­mine what the de­vel­op­ment po­ten­tial is as there are many fac­tors to con­sider. Pe­ter Higham, Op­er­a­tions Direc­tor Gas­coigne Hal­man, Wilmslow 01625 536434 gas­coigne­hal­man.co.uk
