Default Building regs

Hi, I was wondering for some advice, I'm in the process off buying my 1st home, all was going ok, got a homebuyers report, apart from a little damp the only thing he questioned was how the chimney stack was supported, it's been took out all the way to the loft, he wouldn't go upto have alook, so I went round and saw it was supported with a beam running across it, it's been like this for years, even before last owner, anyway I notice on santanders valuation form it said about the single story flat roof extension on the back off the house to extend the kitchen, it just said assuming all appropriate work was carried out, so nothing was flagged up, so I went onto my council web site and I couldn't find planning or building control for it, I asked the seller and he said the work was done before he moved in, and nothing got flagged up with him, he has put a new roof on it, that's all, so he has been in for 10 years, I'm stuck, I don't now wether to pull out, my solicitor has never said out, but he hasn't done any searches yet as I told him to Waite for the homebuyers report to come back, I don't now what to do as I don't now how old the extension is, it's not a big extension, it has a sky light in it,

Just thought I would add, the property is a terrace house, the only thing I found on the planning was that this and next door was a shop at one point
