Planning permission house sale agreed on

Hi all,

We went sale agreed on a house a few weeks ago, there was a large extension build on he side of the house that our surveyor asked to make sure correct plans were obtained for same and some other modifications aswel.

I was looking through fingal but could not find anything for the property for any planning application, is this a worry or is some not a available online?

I asked solicitor but he has yet to get the vendor contracts yet so hasn’t done any of this work yet but we want to get cracking on things especially after the surveyor highlighted it to us.

Am I over concerned by not finding the planning permission or is it a worry? It was on boundary wall of neighbours house so planning would have defo been required!

Thanks

It should be there.
The only thing I’ll say is that Fingals search box is quite particular. It might have a coma after the number or it might not.

Best to just search for your street, so for example if the address is 38 Main Street, just search for main and then check through them.

Thanks for the reply.

Just searching there, found other houses in the area but not our own doesn’t look good.

Very worried now!

It may be exempt, then the vendor will provide an Opinion on compliance with the Exempted Development Regulations, or if not, then they may have to go through the Retention Planning process.

Have you any idea when the extension was built?
How old is the house?

House was build in the early 70’s and the side extension as far as we know so far was build roughly 10-13 years ago.

Doesn’t appear to be any planning application put through for it from searching on fingal!

Would the retention planning process be a lengthy process? I am just worried the bank will decline it now based on no planning for the large extension.

Seller will need to regularise it, it looks like.

Ignoring the time it takes the seller to engage someone to survey, prepare plans and lodge the application, its a 3 month process.

Looks like it should have had PP.
The vendor will have to apply for retention.
That probably won't be a major problem.

Thanks for all the replies and advice everyone.

Do you think the bank will still give the mortgage for it once that’s all sorted on the vendors side.

The bank sent their valuation guy last week and they were happy with the house.

Once everything is regularised the bank should be happy.
This kind of thing is not at all unusual.
The main thing is to get the wheels in motion asap.

Yes, once the survey clarifies the Planning Status then you are good to go.
Its pretty normal.
