I have found a plot of land that I want to buy but I cannot get a mortgage as there is no planning permission on it.
There are a number of other properties in the area and no obvious reasons why it wouldn't get permission.
I heard that I may be able to get a certificate from the local council to say that it probably would get permission if it complied with x, y, z. If I had that I could then get a mortgage, at that point since I now owed the land I could seek detailed planning permission.
Can any one give advice on that, does that sound possible?
