Hello experienced self builders!
I am aware that the most obvious answer to this question will be “that completely depends on the plot” but I will ask anyway just in case anyone has some information about a rule of thumb
When you buy a plot of land with the intention of building a house, the planning permission needs to come from the local authorities, my questions are:
is it reasonable to expect that if you buy a house from a French builder/manufacturer, it should in principle comply with what is commonly seen as normal requirements the local authorities would have? I understand that if you intent to build a house that looks like a Spaceship in a traditional French village, you might run into some issues but as long as you purchase the house from a French chalet manufacturer, would it be safe to assume it will be accepted?
Is there a rule of thumb around what percentage of the size of the plot would be allowed to build on? Say you buy a 1000m2 plot of land, is it common to find that they usually accept houses of up to Xm2? And what about multiple small chalets?
Thanks in advance!
