How to buy land in the UK

Buying land to build your dream home can be a minefield but it can also be very fulfilling if you have the confidence to give it go.

You need to ensure you research the plot throughly and its surrounding area.

Pay particular attention to surrounding buildings (if any), trees, a history of previous flooding or fires.

Are you located next to a refuse plant, motorway or even worse a runway!
