Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve picked out some answers to the most popular questions we get asked by clients and potential customers.

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

What is the difference between planning permission and building regulations?2023-08-24T14:42:41+01:00

Planning consent is a permission to carry out development works. Planning drawings tend to deal with the layout size and appearance of the building.

Building regulations consent is related to the stability of the works, its thermal efficiency and wellbeing of the users/ occupiers.

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.

What will the survey tell me?2023-08-24T11:05:32+01:00

We endeavour to provide a clear concise survey to provide advice from which to negotiate further on price if necessary. We look for defects and advise on the cause, effect and remedy.

What is the difference between a Schedule of Dilapidations and a Schedule of Condition?2023-08-24T11:04:52+01:00

A schedule of dilapidations will only list reinstatement, repair and redecorating works that a tenant or lessee is required to make good in accordance with the repair clauses in their lease. The report will also include reasonable costs for each identified breach which will be a reflection of the landlord’s financial loss as a result of the defects.

A schedule of condition is a descriptive report which records the construction and condition of the property on any given day. The report records both good and bad condition, and does not make any reference to the tenant or lessee’s repair liabilities. A schedule of condition will usually be accompanied by a photographic record.
