Abstract:

How many of us dream of the perfect home, beautifully tailored to our own living requirements and style? And how many more of us dream of creating that home in some spectacular spot overseas? Grand Designs has been one of Channel 4's most successful series for over 4 years - and is about to attract even more viewers as for the first time, it moves overseas to combine home-building dreams with the desire to forge a new life abroad. The book covers all the requirements for locating, buying and securing building permission in the countries targeted by most British buyers - Spain, France, Italy and Ireland. Packed full of invaluable pointers - for example; the 5 most common pitfalls for buyers in France: and how planning permission in Italy is generally a case of retrospective application.
