Smoke Control Order

It is standard practice to order searches when purchasing a property and the local authority is one which may reveal a smoke control order. A smoke control order is whereby you are only allowed to use certain authorised fuels or burn smokeless fuel in specific areas. It is important that you do not breach this order as this can result in a fine of up to £1000.
