Planning permission for Conservatory
Hi, I’m in the process of purchasing a detached property. The property was built in early 1980s and there is a conservatory erected of 12 sq m area. The seller’s solicitors is stating that no document is required for the conservatory extension as it was built about 19 years ago and it is 12 sq m.
But my solicitor is insisting that we must see the proof of year when it was built or have a document from local authority certifying a planning permission was not needed.
I have read that as per the guidelines if the conservatory is to the rear of the property and is less than 24 sqm then there is no need for planning permission.
My question is should my solicitor need to press for the documents for conservatory from the seller’s solicitors? Or I can still go ahead and purchase the property without any documents or proof of when it was built?
This is delaying the whole process. An early response would be really appreciated.
