Garage conversion – no paper work
We are looking to buy a house where the garage has been converted. The owner did the work himself but did have a planning permission. He did not get any other documents as per Building regulations (Warrant and completion certificate).
I understand that he can apply it retrospectively with the council but it will push the timelines we are looking to achieve for the completion.
Is there a possibility of us sorting these things after buying the house? Are there any legal implications? If not, then what kind of cost we are looking to incur in the whole process?
It will be big help if we can get an advise on this.
