Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Refurbishing a utility room and toilet and removing an old flimsy partition wall in what was originally the outhouse/toilet of two 1850 cottages which had put been together and enlarged in 1981. The work was done in 2003 (when we moved in ) by our trusted builder but I cannot find his papers It is not in building terms an extension as the outer walls are still 1850.He assured us that it did not need Building Regulations either.I have to fill in Solicitors forms today as I have an offer on the house . Their 2 surveyors have been recently and approved the work .The solicitors forms are much more technical and detailed than in 2003. Is there a time limit on keeping /finding papers and not needing Building Regulations?
As soon as possible please. Martin
Tom.What about double glazed windows fitted in 2003 so out of guarantee again i cannot find any paperwork.? Again as soon as possible please.
Are you sure? I thought it was April 2002 on the forms.
Sorry Tom but your first answer unfortunately was wrong.2005 would have been easier for me. Does Fensa apply after the 10 year guarantee period?
done it already.sorry tom
