A planning search must always be carried against the property, generally prior to contract, by both the vendor and the purchaser. The vendor, to confirm that there have been no development of the property since October 1 1964 for which planning permission is required or, if there has been development that all necessary planning permissions required have been granted, and conditions therein met, or, if on review of the planning search results, the vendor’s solicitor may determine that General Condition 36 of the Contract needs to be limited. The purchaser should conduct a planning search to determine if there are any issues with the planning history of the property. A Planning search, by default will include details of any grants or refusals of planning applications on the Planning Register, as well as the zoning of the property, any road widening which affects the property, and any entries in the Planning Register in relation to the enforcement or warning notices. By default the planning search covers the planning history of the property since Oct 1 1964.
