The purpose of the Planning Search is to provide a full planning history of the property. We recommend planning searches when purchasing a property.
Planning Searches involve a detailed examination of all previous planning applications to ensure that there are no unauthorised developments. It also involves the inspection of relevant and current planning applications in the immediate surrounding area and advises on any proposed applications, which may have an adverse affect on the property.
Confirmation from Building Control is also sought to ensure that there are no Enforcement Notices or Purchase Orders served on the property. If required we can also carry out an inspection in the relevant Local Authority roads department and advise on any future road widening proposals, which may affect the site.
