    Not being made aware of Planning Permission

    Hi,

    I moved in to a house last week where I have now found out through opening a letter from the council that the Landlord has submitted application to put a 3 bedroom house on the side of our semi-detached property.

    Through the application process by the Letting Agent I wasn't made aware of this, and the Landlord didn't seem to think I'd need to know during my 6 month contract anyway!

    He said that the only work that would be carried out would be the knocking down of our garage and turning the front garden into our new driveway... surely this should have been told to me before I moved in?

    NB. The plans to build and modify our gardens was not in the contract.

    There's no reason to inform you that he has submitted an application. It doesn't mean the works are approved or starting. You've only signed a 6-month contract and it is likely that the work won't be in a position to start until after this time.

    Now, if you had just moved inand were then being told that the works were starting tomorrow, things would be different.
    There is always scope for misinterpretation.

    If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

    Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.

    • Dispute over boundary land
      by cazamoran
      This might take a while, you may want to grab a cup of tea!
      Ill try to condense things. A friend persuaded us to sell part of our garden upon which he obtained permission and built a house. After failing to sell the house, his son now lives there. I started noticing that along the boundary wall,...

      I made a complaint to the ombudsman which was successful. My council was really annoyed as they had refused to show me a copy of a document and the Ombudsman forced them to send her a copy which she forwarded to me.

    • 5 Year Private Property Licence Ended After One Year
      by AKRS
      Hi All, I could really use some guidance in a matter relating to the above. We were told by our agency handling our property that we needed to obtain a licence through the council. I did my research and asked all the relevant questions and found out that the licence will cost 650 for five years. Sounds...

      In this case I would ask a Chartered Town Planner, Don't contact the council apart from looking on their Planning Portal

      I am wondering if anyone can answer my question please?

      There is a plot for sale in my area that has planning permission granted on it. The thing is, this was granted when the site was larger than it now is as the vendor has fenced a section of it off and built himself a log cabin style...

      The plans provided with the planning application will show the position and size of the house granted planning permission, as well as showing the extent of the land identified on the site plan.

      The planning permission would have taken into account the area available for garden, and parking...

      Hi Tipper. It was granted for one dwelling but vendor has since built the cabin and fenced off the plot he is selling saying it has planning. But the planning was granted for the original whole site before he built his cabin that he lives in .

      It probably depends on what the permission was for and how many dwellings, etc.
      Also when pp was achieved as they run out after 3 years in most if not all cases.

      You can check on the local planning online to see the details, drawings, dates, etc.

      No not too late. We had the same situation for our three holiday lets.

      We pressed the installer to register the new boilers with Gas Safe who in turn send certification to the local Building Regs which is what they are supposed to do upon installation, assuming they are qualified and 'Gas...

      Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but what are the circumstances to obtain a Buildings Regulations Certificate? For example building a house, an extension, fitting a new boiler, installing a new light fitting, replacing a light bulb etc?
