We had to smile when we read this weekend that a couple in Leicester had hidden a house behind a fake garage door in an attempt to breach planning regulations. We of course would never condone such behaviour but you have to admire their tenacity!
With this in mind, it is worth reminding everyone of the importance of gaining the final completion certificate from the local council along with electrical and gas safety certificate if you have any building works done, as these will be needed if the house is sold at a later date.
We find, only too often that this is often forgotten in all the excitement of having the project finished. It is only when owners come to sell their home that these documents become all so important. They can be obtained retrospectively but this can cause unnecessary delay in the sales process.
