    Hi everyone.

    Can anyone please tell me what sort of non-refundable deposit a developer should expect to pay when purchasing a property with the condition that the developer can obtain planning permission on it?

    Thank you.

    Had a quick look on Google and there is no reference to an "average" figure - I think it will depend on the seller who has ultimate control.

    I am not sure why a developer would only take a deposit. If they took for example a 20% deposit and planning permission on the property was denied then surely this would impact its potential value? Selling it with "possible" planning permission must be better than selling it with "no" planning permission? Hope value must account for something?
