Advice before you apply
We know that building can be a daunting process and that it is very important to have completion certificates for your building work, for mortgage purposes or in any future sale of the property.
We offer a free pre-application telephone advice service for technical building regulations matters, so that main issues can be ironed out before any works are carried out. In addition we offer a pre-application site meeting service for a fixed fee of £60.00 plus vat. (£72.00 inc) - this fee is then deducted from any future building regulations application for that project.
Please note that works solely improving access and facilities for disabled persons and dwelling house alterations and extensions for an disabled person in residence are exempt from the fees. Applications are still required to ensure the works meet the regulations but in these cases no fees will be applicable. Suitable proof of disability will be required such as a GP letter confirming the appropriate need etc.
Things to consider
- If you wish to meet at our offices it is helpful if drawings are available
- Building Control is not the same as Planning: surveyors are unable to comment on the need for or likelihood of success in applying for planning permissions or Party Wall Act consent
- We do not charge for this service
