CILS Payments

The Community Infrastructure Levy.

If a property achieves a higher price because it comes with Planning Permission, who is liable for the CIL payment ? The Vendor or the Purchaser?

As always the ins and outs are quite complicated and there are many different scenarious.

You can read a bit about it below or for more information click the Linktree.

Most new development which creates net additional floor space of 100 square metres or more, or creates a new dwelling, is potentially liable for the levy.

Some developments may be eligible for relief or exemption from the levy. This includes residential annexes and extensions, and houses and flats which are built by ‘self-builders’. There are strict criteria that must be met, and procedures that must be followed, to obtain the relief or exemption.

In all cases where CIL is payable in relation to the development, the collecting authority will expect the developer, landowner or another interested party to assume liability for the levy by submitting an assumption of liability form. It may speed up the process of issuing a liability notice if this form is submitted before planning permission is granted.
