If you have extended your property from the original plan you will need a Certificate Of Compliance. The benefit of having this in order before you go to market is if there are any issues you can resolve them before putting your house on the market. This will ensure that your sale runs smoothly as everything will be in order.
Some things that could come up from an Engineer or Architect completing a Certificate Of Compliance are:
-If an extension was over 40sqm and you didn’t get planning you would need to apply for retention and this can take a few months to get approved
-A lot of extensions don’t have correct ventilation in them but, this is easily resolved
Without a Certificate Of Compliance, you could put your house up for sale, go sale agreed and then a buyer might pull out as the house might not comply with building regulations.
We recommend Property Health Check as they are priced well and are very efficient.
