Customer Question

The local authority searches showed no restriction on permitted development rights, but now after purchasing a new build home the council are insisting permitted development rights A to H are restricted by planning awarded to the developer. (Cotswold County Council)
JA: The Property Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No not yet...
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Property Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Property Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: The Search was made on 09-April-2014 by TM Search Choice Ltd Swindon prior to the purchase of 6 Jubilee Mews, Andoversford GL54 4AZ in June that year. In the section Notices, Orders, Directions and Proceedings under Planning Acts Cotswold Council replied to (j) a direction restricting permitted development; NO

Was the search carried out by the local authority or by a personal search company?

Have you raised the issue with the solicitors that acted on the purchase?

As much background detail as possible is really useful please.

I may not get back to you until Tuesday because obviously, it is the bank holiday weekend I will not be online regularly. I apologise for any inconvenience.
