If a neighbour has built his brick built garage encroaching

This answer was rated:

If a neighbour has built his brick built garage encroaching on the land of a house I am about to buy, my title deed plan shows a perfect division line, but the reality is that the garage is clearly more than a metre into my garden, before I purchase, I would like to know if there is planning permission and a building warrant passed. Did the person from the council accept this? This garage wall is more than 6 feet high. Can he apply for planning in retrospect? can I block his planning application and have him move his garage wall?
