Building control regulations and advice
If you are considering building or altering a property we have a complete Building Control service, from pre-application advice through to inspection and certification of the completed work.
Coronavirus update: Our inspection arrangements for works under construction have changed. Find out more here.
Our building control surveyors are here to help you ensure your property is safe and up to current legal requirements. This covers everything from building design to services and utilities, disabled access, means of escape, and much more.
Completion certificates are often required to show that building work complies with the regulations, for mortgage purposes or in any future sale of the property.
Where works are carried out without building regulations approval being sought, the owner may be prosecuted.
If you aren’t sure what kind of approval you require, please ask us for free advice. Always check whether you will need planning permission beforehand.
