I have identified a patch of vacant land and I enquired to Scottish Land Registry about the owner.
It is considered to be two plots, measuring 548.5m2 and 360m2, owned by Glasgow City Council.
I live only yards from it and I know it has been vacant for a long time. In fact, one portion has signs of having had a residence before. There are old entrance pillars leading up to a flat level site. This sits between two commercial premises which were formally residential homes.
I also have copies of the sasine register.
My friend and I each own our own flats, which we would sell in order to finance the purchase. We want to build a resident home for ourselves to live in .
Before instructing conveyancing solicitors etc, should I write a letter of enquiry to Glasgow City Council? If so would you consider helping me write it?
I also want to know whether I get government aid/grants for self building? And if we were to go green, would we get financial aid?
I appreciate your assistance and advice.
