Letter of Consent for Planning Permission

    Hi All,

    I have a question relating to Planning Permission.

    I am currently living in a property which the land it is on, plus an adjoining field, is in the process of being transferred over to me.

    I wish to apply for planning permission for an extension to the property, and I am aware of the need for a letter from the land owner providing consent. However, at the moment this is not possible.

    I have been advised that my solicitor who is dealing with the transfer draft a formal letter stating that the land is currently in the process of being transferred with the PRAI.

    Does anyone have any experience with a situation like this?

    Would the letter from my Solicitor suffice, with a letter from me as the prospective owner following the legal transfer?

    Many thanks in advance!

    The letter from the solicitor confirming your legal claim on the property should suffice.

    Letter from solicitor is more than enough.

    I’ve lodged with hand written letters from the home owner allowing tenants apply in the past.

    Thanks @muffler and @Gumbo, I will hopefully get the letter drafted tomorrow!
