Need Advice?

If a building has been officially listed,  designated as a national heritage site or is within a conservation area, it will mean that there are more stringent requirements that an owner will have to adhere to if they wish to make any alterations to the premises in question.

In these circumstances, if you want to build an extension, carry out renovations or make any changes to the appearance of the site then you need to ensure that you have secured all necessary permissions from the relevant planning authorities.

Failure to do so can result in a financial penalty being imposed, so it is very important that the legislation is respected at all times.

The exact requirements of securing approval vary depending on the designation, which is why it is important that you seek an expert opinion to clarify where you stand legally.

At OGR Stock Denton, our property solicitors have expert knowledge of the processes you need to follow and all the relevant checks that will have to be carried out. Our advice will give you peace of mind that you are following the correct procedure at all times.
