A big “thank you” to YOU, for making Property on Fire one of the biggest podcasts in the world, after the success of last week's episode, which was all about the new Class MA – https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/019-special-new-class-ma-class-e-to-residential-big/id1533958660?i=1000515414429 (https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/019-special-new-class-ma-class-e-to-residential-big/id1533958660?i=1000515414429) On this episode, you'll hear a Leading Homes update : The office to resi conversation at Totnes is hotting up. The sale of the properties is speeding up, and we're starting to see people move in to their new homes. Ian talks about how it feels “odd” to see people moving in, because he's spent the last few years converting and creating and shaping the site. It's the end of an era of development, and the start of something really exciting for the new residents.... the wonderful investors who are seeing their returns come in, and of course Leading Homes who will see their profits build, which will be very pleasant, after such a long development. Meanwhile, in North Devon, plans for the bungalow designs have been perfected, modified and are almost finalised. On this packed episode, you'll also hear about the end of Class-O and potential Class MA loopholes. As always, Ian's had many questions land on his desk during the week. This week on Property on Fire, he answers one for Michael about WAYS TO ADD VALUE TO A PROPERTY IN A BUSY MARKET. Ian breaks his answer down into 5 manageable segments for raising the value: Problem solving The garden The interior House frontage House exterior He talks Michael through each segment comprehensively. If you think you may take value from a one-to-one session with Ian (via Zoom), here's the link with more details of his mentoring services: https://www.planninggeek.co.uk/education/skype-zoom-calls/ (https://www.planninggeek.co.uk/education/skype-zoom-calls/) ________ A regular podcast from your host Ian Walmsley.

Referred to as a ‘Walking Encyclopaedia’ by a mentor he developed a passion for planning in 2015 having got fed up with inaccurate information on some websites as to what was possible with property or land that he was looking to develop. In 2017 he set up the site ‘Planning Geek‘ as a way to inform others as to the possibilities of using permitted development rights on both domestic and commercial property. This has now grown to cover many other aspects of planning, giving plenty of ‘wow’ moments. To the best of our knowledge, It is now the largest planning website in the UK, apart from the national planning portal. He now speaks around the UK at both property meets and with mentorship groups as a developer/planning geek. As a developer with his company, Leading Homes, he has 40 dwellings under construction with a further 50 plus in legals or pre-construction. The one thing he is not is a Planning Consultant – he is a Planning Geek – although a chartered town planner said ‘Ian knows more about planning than most planners!’. He is simply ‘A developer who loves planning’. As a result he has nothing to sell from his talks, which is always a refreshing change!   CONTACT METHOD Podcast website: https://propertyonfire.co.uk/ (https://PropertyonFire.co.uk) Podcast email: ian@propertyonfire.co.uk Ian’s official website: https://ianwalmsley.com/ (https://IanWalmsley.com/) Facebook: https://facebook.com/Ian.C.Walmsley (https://facebook.com/Ian.C.Walmsley)...

Welcome to Property on Fire, on this episode..... You'll hear a Leading Homes update, and learn from Ian's on the ground experiences. The South Devon development is creeping ever closer to sign off from building control (It's been a "bit of a battle", and taken longer than anticipated). There's more interest than ever by potential buyers, and new buyers are waiting to complete and can't wait to move in to their new homes. Meanwhile in North Devon at the 14 bungalow site with full planning is in the pre-commencement stage at the moment, during which the team have been reviewing bungalow designs, and bringing them up to date. Ian and Jonathan have recently secured a new site in Cornwall, and they are now operating an "earn and learn" system for new investors, for details please visit: https://leadinghomes.co.uk/working-with-us/partner/ (https://leadinghomes.co.uk/working-with-us/partner/) Ian's Rant: Is it aimed at YOU this week? If you have an incomplete social media profile which doesn't explain what you do, then prepare to be shot down in flames! (or just take some time to update it....and we can all be friends again!) As always, Ian's had many questions land on his desk during the week. This week on Property on Fire, he answers one for Steve, who wants to know all about annexes. Here's the URL that Ian refers to during his answer : https://www.planninggeek.co.uk/planning/do-you-need-permission/granny-annexe/ (https://www.planninggeek.co.uk/planning/do-you-need-permission/granny-annexe/) This week's second question comes from Alan, who wants to know about the legalities of submitting prior approvals for property you don't own.

Welcome to Property on Fire, on this episode..... You'll hear why Leading Homes have decided to install air source heat pumps into their new builds, at a cost of £7,000 extra per property. Ian will also explain the importance of contacting local residents and speaking to them about your development plans and timeframes, and how it can pay dividends in the long run. Ian's A-Z of Property is still on the letter A (That's because for some reason there are soooo many A's), this week, it's everything there is to know about "Angel Investors" - If you want to FIND ONE, stay tuned, as there will be an episode to cover that soon. As always, Ian's had many questions land on his desk during the week. This week on Property on Fire, he answers one about an invalid Class O conversion application, and whether it will now be impacted by the new minimum space requirement regulations that are coming in to force on April 6th. Here's the URL Ian spoke about in his answer: https://www.planninggeek.co.uk/gpdo/changes-of-use/paragraph-w/ (https://www.planninggeek.co.uk/gpdo/changes-of-use/paragraph-w/) There's another question from Angie who owns a flat that's failed to meet the minimum letting requirements on it's EPC and wants to know if she can apply for exemption.

Welcome to Property on Fire, on this episode..... You'll hear updates from Leading Home's two main development sites in Devon - yet more proof that Ian's walking the walk (as well as talking the talk). That ties in nicely with Ian's Rant: If you're a property "mentor" who's been in the business for five minutes, Ian's got his sights firmly set on YOU! Ian's A-Z of Property is still on the letter A (That's because for some reason there are soooo many A's), this week it's all about Amenity space and Amenity land. As always, Ian's had many questions land on his desk during the week. This week on Property on Fire, he answers one from from Leo about putting a dormer on the front of his house. The answer involves "highways", so we hear what is, and what isn't officially defined as a highway. There's another question from Val, who wants to know should long a decision back on a planning application should take. Val didn't specify what type of application she's asking about, so Ian helpfully runs through different kinds, and clarifies their timeframes. ________ A regular podcast from your host Ian Walmsley.

Welcome to Property on Fire, on this episode..... You'll meet Steph Taylor, who's talking to Ian about her property business. She started less than five years ago, when her life required her to have more time flexibility than a standard employee job (in a bank) would allow. She chats about her Rent-to-Rent, HMO's and Serviced accommodation strategies.

In 2017 he set up the site ‘Planning Geek‘ as a way to inform others as to the possibilities of using permitted development rights on both domestic and commercial property. This has now grown to cover many other aspects of planning, giving plenty of ‘wow’ moments. To the best of our knowledge, It is now the largest planning website in the UK, apart from the national planning portal. He now speaks around the UK at both property meets and with mentorship groups as a developer/planning geek. As a developer with his company, Leading Homes, he has 40 dwellings under construction with a further 50 plus in legals or pre-construction. The one thing he is not is a Planning Consultant – he is a Planning Geek – although a chartered town planner said ‘Ian knows more about planning than most planners!’. He is simply ‘A developer who loves planning’. As a result he has nothing to sell from his talks, which is always a refreshing change!   CONTACT METHOD Podcast website: https://propertyonfire.co.uk/ (https://PropertyonFire.co.uk) Podcast email: ian@propertyonfire.co.uk Ian’s official website: https://ianwalmsley.com/ (https://IanWalmsley.com/) Facebook: https://facebook.com/Ian.C.Walmsley (https://facebook.com/Ian.C.Walmsley) LinkedIn: https://linkedin.com/in/iancwalmsley/ (https://linkedin.com/in/iancwalmsley/) Leading Homes: https://lleadinghomes.co.uk/ (https://LeadingHomes.co.uk) Planning Geek: https://planninggeek.co.uk/ (https://PlanningGeek.co.uk) Planning Geek Facebook Community: https://facebook.com/groups/planninggeek (https://facebook.com/groups/planninggeek) DISCLAIMER The views, thoughts and opinions expressed in this podcast belong solely to the hosts and guest speakers.

On this episode you'll hear "Ian's Rant" (this time, investors are in his sights), and the new series of "Ian's A-Z of Property" begins with an A, so the subject will be Asbestos. As always, Ian's had many questions land on his desk during the week. This week on Property on Fire, he answers one about how to find out who owns a piece of land, and another about how to convert a restaurant to a flat (and put two flats above it), and whether planning is required or not.

On this episode you'll meet Ian, and hear about his background and passions for property, planning and helping people succeed in the business. As always, Ian's had many questions land on his desk during the week. This week on Property on Fire, he answers Sasha's.

Mohammed and Max have questions about the new mandatory minimum space standards, and daylight requirements for habitable rooms. Ian explains about the new changes and also points out that some standards may soon be changing. When they do, you'll hear about them here.
