It is hard and sad to believe that some developers or owners of a building with Planning Permit did not know the requisite documents to process their Planning Permit not to mention those that haven’t obtained theirs. As a result they found it difficult to authenticate documents received from their consultant. This has lead to serious dispute between them.
