Property Certificates

The sellers solicitor has to provide property certificates to the buyers solicitor. These certificates provide up to date information about the property.

The department of the environment property certificates confirm such matters as whether there are any proposals for road works which may affect the property, whether there are public sewers and water mains available to serve the property, and whether the property has been the subject of a planning application.

The local council Property Certificates reveal whether there have been any notices affecting the property in relation to Building Control Approval or enforcement, if there are any orders or notices against the property under Environmental Health legislation and whether the property is affected by any legal proceedings taken by the local council.
