If you are unsure whether an existing building or use of a building is lawful, we can assess whether you are exempt from enforcement action and help to assemble the required supporting information to apply for a Lawful Development Certificate.

This may be particularly important in the event of a sale, or prior to expansion of an existing business or residential property.

If you have been served an enforcement notice by the Local Planning Authority and find yourself requiring planning permission but do not qualify to apply for a Lawful Development Certificate, we can help you secure retrospective planning permission.
