    Are you sure your vendor had planning permission?

    A case reported by the BBC on the 10th of May 20181 highlighted how local authorities are clamping down on individuals who build or alter a property without the necessary planning permission. Mr Naseem was subject to this when he applied for planning permission to build a home for his family, which was 76 cm too tall. Despite not obtaining permission he went ahead and built a house worth £500,000. The local authority took action against him and advised that he either demolishes the property or pays £200,000 to replace the roof. Having spent his entire budget on construction, he did not have the necessary funds to finance this.
