Ensuring that your property has the correct planning use or that your business complies with any relevant environmental requirements is essential.
Failure to do so is high risk and could result in:
– enforcement action by the local authority or other agencies with potential fines,
– claims by your landlord or neighbours,
– loss of value and the ability to mortgage your property as well as
– loss of business and wasted management time.
It is imperative that you seek good legal advice to make sure you property has the correct planning use.
