Expensive quotes for new build?

Thank you for all your comments and here is a bit more detail
*in South East
*the land was part of a large garden on an existing btl. No real down value in existing house price as garden will be same size as all other houses in area
*if I was to sell house would get £185k approx
*if I was to sell land with pp would be in region of £50k

There is not alot of pounds in this but I am happy to increase my rental stock with a new build.
I understand if I project managed myself and sourced my own materials would save alot but do not want to project manage and am happy to source some materials as long as doesn't hold up build. Met with builder today who I could work with and he is going to revisit his quote, is happy for me to source kitchen. He is also going to give me a price for a timber framed house which will be brick exterior and timber frame inside. Would be interested in your views on this particularly when I sell on whether this would be an issue for mortgage companies.

Thank you... Read More

After a bit of backwards and forwards I got planning but in process it highlighted boundary that had been moved/underground pipes so please don't under estimate cost of getting planning and time it can take. From my point of view worth it as it is now a potential building plot rather than a large garden that my tenant didn't want to maintain so worth it. Good luck... Read More
