Terms and Conditions for Opinions on Compliance
Opinion/s of Compliance are prepared in accordance with the formats recommended by the Law Society of Ireland Conveyancing Handbook.
Limitations of Opinion
- Opinions are based on a visual inspection of the named structural aspects of the development only (as per details submitted in quote). They are issued solely to provide evidence for title purposes of the substantial compliance of the relevant development with planning control, within the meaning of the Planning Acts. Opinions are not a report or survey on the physical condition or the structure of the relevant works. Opinions do not warrant, represent, or consider any of the following:
- Matters in respect of private rights and obligations.
- Matters of financial contributions and bonds.
- Development of the property which may occur after the date of issue of the Opinion.
- The files researched for an Opinion on Compliance are provided by the Local Planning Authority. We can only comment on what is contained in the files that are presented to us for inspection by the Planning Authority. The files may be incomplete, documents may have been misfiled, removed or even altered, therefore we do not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information or data. We do not claim that this source represents an exhaustive or comprehensive list of all sources that might be consulted.
- When a planning permission refers to an entire multi-unit or apartment block complex, house estates or multi-unit commercial centres, the Opinion on Compliance Certificate will be restricted to the individual unit only and not the entire development.
