Max Lowry : Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
Max Lowry : There are strict requirements to be able to search HMLR by name, but then, even if you could do that, it would only tell you the name of the owner of the property and not the builder.
Max Lowry : There is no way or locating the builder by a central registry. You would have to place an advert in a local/national paper and invite people to come forward and give you information.
Customer: would it be possible to check Councils for planning permissions or Do I have to have the exact Council the development took place ?
Max Lowry : You can - but again, it's not to say the builder would have applied for the planning permission. So, that's not going to be the most reliable either.
Max Lowry : And you would need to search with all the Councils.
Max Lowry : Again, there is no central registry of this.
Customer: well many thanks for your assistance - its a pity
