Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to questions our team frequently get asked by customers and potential clients.

To read our full list of frequently asked questions, please click here.

What is Permitted Development?2023-08-24T11:11:13+01:00

Permitted Development rights are a national grant of planning consent which allow certain building works and changes of use to be carried out without having to make a planning application. Permitted Development rights are subject to conditions and limitations to control impacts and to protect local amenity.

Whilst Permitted Development removes the requirement to apply for formal planning consent Andrews Eades would still recommend that you apply for a Certificate of Lawful Development from the Local Authority, as this would confirm that your proposed works are legal in planning terms.

Do I need a survey when buying a property?2023-08-24T11:03:00+01:00

For most people a house is the most expensive purchase they will ever make in their lives, and whilst there is no requirement to have a survey when purchasing a property, we would always recommend that a survey is undertaken. Houses are complex structures with many hidden elements, and it is only through a great deal of experience and knowledge that one of our RICS accredited chartered surveyors can provide a comprehensive report on its construction and condition.

A survey will serve a variety of purposes when purchasing a property, from making a purchaser aware of any defects and issues within the building, to helping negotiate a reduction in purchase price due to unforeseen issues, to walking away from the purchase altogether when the property has some serious issues.

Do I need permission?2023-10-05T13:52:12+01:00

Most proposed building work is subject to compliance with planning policy, however whether you must formally apply for planning consent is dependent on the nature of the work you intend to undertake and the type of property you own.

More minor extensions and alterations may be undertaken without the need to formally apply for planning consent if they meet Permitted Development criteria.

Andrews Eades will be able to advise you whether your project meets Permitted Development criteria, and if not, which type of planning application is required to apply for consent.

I am concerned that my neighbour has started building work close to my property. What should I do?2023-08-24T11:04:03+01:00

If you have not been served with a party wall notice by your neighbour then it may be that the proposed works are not notifiable under the Act, however there are occurrences where the works are notifiable but the neighbour has not served prior notice. In either case we would recommend giving us a call for further advice as the action required will vary depending on the circumstances. In the immediate term however you could ask your neighbour to cease works until confirmation has been provided by a party wall professional, and take photographs of your property to record its condition.
