Buying land

Evening all,

I'm looking for some land to place a double garage/shed on as a workshop for my boat and car.

Question is finding houses for sale is easy but where do I find land for sale? All the sites I've been on are more like esatates and have nothing for sale "up North".

I'm in Staithes, North Yorkshire if that helps?

Thanks

Your local auction house will be your best bet mate

How/where would I find that? Is it a specific auction house or just any?

Start with a rightmove search for land. There are specific websites for land, plotfinders one, plotsearch......... just google it.

I have found the best way is to actively advertise for it though, either through a local paper, shop windows or letters pushed through doors (google maps to find the plot)

I would suggest you actually speak to your local estate agents. There's every chance they will have land for sale or contacts that'll be of use. It's often the case that they don't bother advertising land or garages as there is so little comission involved, but they may have knowlegde of bits for sale.

Don't forget that it's not as simple as just buying some land and sticking a shed on it. You're likely to need planning permission which may or may not be easy to get.

I don't know where you're thinking of, but an easier approach might be to talk to local farmers and try to find an existing building to rent.

I like the idea of renting a building but would prefer to buy a plot of land and stick some form of building on it.
I live in a National Park so planning is strict but as strict as I thought it would be.

I'll have a look on the sites suggested and see what comes up.

In which case I'd hazard a guess that you have somewhere between no chance and no chance at all of being able to do what you want!

Not 100% on this but I think as long as the construction isn't permanent like a large shed or the very large plastic garages you can get, then you don't need planning. Something like these LINK

Dutch barns and other argricultural buildings often don't need permission.
