Chimney breast removal

What permissions and documents do I need for a Chimney breast removal in a first floor bedroom?

The chimney breast is on a shared wall of a 1930s semi-detached house.
The downstairs living room chimney breast has already been removed - should there be a certificate for how structurally sound this removal was when it was removed?
(We are buying this house)
