In the event that planning permission is not required, an application may be made to the local authority for a 'Lawful Development Certificate', which confirms that planning permission was not required for the proposed extension. This is most useful in the event of the property being sold, as it answers any solicitor's questions in regard to the legality of any addition that has been made to the property. Notwithstanding the requirements of planning legislation, most extensions will be required to be built in accordance with the Building Regulations. This can be achieved either by producing detailed drawings for approval (there is a cross section illustrated on the left) or by submitting a 'Building Notice' to either the local authority or a private building inspector.
