Implications of a building without planning

I am a first time buyer and have found a house I really like the look of (still in very initial stages so have not yet viewed it). The house has a good sized garden, and at the bottom of the garden is a brick building advertised as a workshop. There is only a tiny mention of it in the ad, saying the workshop has 3 rooms, double glazing, electricity and plumbing, but that there is no planning. So, can anyone tell me the implications of having a building without planning? Is this something I should steer clear of? The house was last sold in 2009 and the 'workshop' was there at the time, if that makes any difference.

If it's been there for longer than four years and hasn't been concealed then it's unlikely to be an issue.
