Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practicing lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
BRs are enforceable by building control for a period of 12 months from the date of completion by the LA unless they can show a strucutre is dangerous. However if you wish to sell the property eventually as sleeping accommodation most buyers will wish to see BRs anyway despite the above so it is worth considering obtaining them retrospectively.
In addition if you are renting out the property then you are bound by the Housing Act under which councils can take action if any part of the building rented is not safe for the tenant and accordingly obtaining retrospective BRs gives you some comfort that this should not be an issue for you.
There is no criminal offence committed though.
