Conveyancing Advice: Your conveyancing lawyer will  assume that you are proposing that the property you are purchasing  is to be used for residential purposes only.   In the event that you have a different proposed use for the property then you will need to raise this with your conveyancing lawyer or solicitor.

If you believe works have been undertaken of either an extension or structural nature that may have required Planning Permission or Building Regulation Approval, but these have not been supplied or disclosed, you will need to let your conveyancing solicitor or property lawyer know immediately.

Whilst conveyancing  searches may reveal breaches of Planning Permission or Building Regulation Approval, they will not reveal whether works have been commissioned without formal consent. It is your responsibility to highlight any such works to us to your conveyancing lawyer. In addition to extensions, this could include, for example, the removal of structural walls or the conversion of a garage or loft space to create additional living accommodation.

From April 2002 even the glass used in re-glazed windows should comply with Building Regulations requirements.   Please note that it is unlikely that your conveyancing lawyer will be responsible for checking that extensions or alterations have appropriate Planning Permission or Building Regulation Approval unless you specifically make them aware of the existence of such matters.
