    Who is liable, incorrect cubic volume calculations? 7th Aug 18 at 9:55 AM
    Can anyone help with any previous examples please?

    We believe we are semi detached, all our documents, surveys, insurance etc say so. Our land registry document when we bought the property doesn't say either way. Our architect and structural engineers designed and built a loft conversion using those measurements. We have now found out that the land registry classes us as terrace and our permitted development has been refused. I know we should have waited for permission before working but we were advised it would be OK.

    If we assume land registry hasn't made a mistake (our neighbours garage touches his neighbours) and we are enforced (not sure yet) to reduce the cubic volume, who would be liable for the costs? Architect, structural engineer or us?

    As I said, it's like your picture. No building over garage.

    Today the council have ruled we ARE semi-detached!
    Panic over
