CIL exemption for self and custom builders comes into force

cil-exemption-passes-image-2

24 February 2014

The long awaited exemption from Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charges for self and custom builders finally came into effect today (24 February). The changes will typically save most self builders £10,000 to £30,000.

The move has come after 18 months of Government deliberation, and following a sustained campaign by the National Self Build Association (NaSBA).

Wonderful I thought when I found out about this, and applied, as the groundwork begins next week, as we are committed to making a 'transport contribution' because we are increasing beds from 3 to 4.

In reply I got the following mealy mouthed nonsense;
"The implementation of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) in Purbeck will not start until 05/06/2014. All planning application decisions issued on or after this date will be liable for CIL. For further information, please refer to the following; https://www.dorsetforyou.com/purbeck-community-infrastructure-levy. I note that you intend to start implementing your planning permission on 31/03/2014. As this is the case, I regret to inform you that the self build exemption does not apply and you are bound by the legal agreement which forms part of planning permission."

which seems to me to be playing with words, as the 'transport contribution' is CIL by another name.

Any thoughts anyone?

If you sell or rent your home within three years of completion you will have to pay the CIL charge. Read the document that NaSBA has prepared (there is a link in the story above) - it explains how it works and what documentation you need. The government has made it clear that it will clamp down on anyone trying to 'dodge' the CIL, and there could be penalties/fines for anyone caught doing it.

Is the self builder allowed to sell or rent out the building (or part of it) within the 3 years after completion? If not, what piece of legislation directly applies to forbid this? Thanks.

For clarification - CIL is not the same as a Section 106 Affordable Housing contribution. So you may still have to pay this. The government has said it is minded to make self builders exempt from this charge too, but this has not happened yet and it could take a few months to bring this into effect.

Hi,

In my area we pay Section 106 levy, will this receive the same exemption?

Thank you

Well done to Ted and the team at NASBA for helping to push this through...glad commonsense finally prevailed for the benefit to the Custom Build market...

This is good news.
Will it apply to S106 payments as well?
