Planning Report (Plansearch Plus)

A planning report (Plansearch Plus) provides detailed information about current and prior planning history of a property and information about land use policies.

Whereas a Local Authority Search highlights planning permission on your property, the Plan Search Plus identifies planning applications in your local area, information about local amenities, education and crime rates. Buying a home in an area that is being over developed could have a negative impact on your property price.

Mortgage Lenders do not normally require you to book a planning report - it is not among their stipulated property searches - but there may be circumstances where you are advised to get one or you may simply want the peace of mind which accompanies receiving highly detailed and comprehensive local information which is relevant to the property you are looking to buy.
