CERTIFICATES/ OPINIONS OF COMPLIANCE


If you are selling a property where additional construction works were done to it,
for example an extension to the rear, or an attic conversion, your solicitor may
request an opinion of compliance on those works.
If the works come within the rules for exempted development, this certificate will
State this, and that the works are constructed in compliance with building regulations.

If the works required / were granted planning permission, and provided they are in
Substantial compliance with the drawings submitted to the local council, the
Certificate may also state this.

We conduct and prepare opinions of compliance with exemption from
planning permission/ Compliance with building regulations for domestic houses  
from as little as €250.00.
