We are in a situation, where a dubious agent is advertising greenbelt land for sale on RightMove.com with a clause that says ‘Suitable for residential, commercial or agricultural subject to the necessary consents’.
The local farmland was recently purchased, but the new owners are now subdividing into small plots which any new owners will have very little chance of getting planning permission for a home, business, or agricultural use as there is no water or mains utilities, and highway access is limited.
Currently, some sites have already encouraged illegal buildings, and which have been served with enforcement notices, but are now going to appeal with the planning inspectorate.
We will voice our concerns to the government inspectorate on every case (possibly 80 plots) and to any new planning applications, however, how can we stop other victims from falling for this property purchase scam?
