What do you need to know about building regulations approval?

A project involving either construction or alterations to existing properties will likely require approval. Building regulations approval is distinct from planning permission, but keep in mind you might need both. It is your responsibility to ensure this is done, though if you are unfamiliar with the process you can have your tradesmen organise it on your behalf. You can also check your local council or building control body website for advice. Remember that certain applications have fixed fees which you will be expected to pay. Also be aware that not having the proper certificates of compliance may lead to prosecution, or at the very least may make it harder for you to sell your home.

When hiring a tradesman to survey your property in order to gain building regulations approval, you should make sure they are adequately qualified and experienced. Check their websites for customer reviews - have they worked on properties similar to yours in the past? They should also be covered with professional indemnity insurance in case an error in their work leads to defects or fines for you down the line.

Excellent communications, friendly, competitive price. He came over and did the preliminary report- knows his stuff. We didn't end up progressing with any further work... but would not hesitate to use him in the future if we needed to. recommended+++

I needed a structural engineer to give me a report that the wall I wanted to knock down was not a load bearing wall, I have received many quotes, very high quotes that included all sorts of services that I didn't need. However Mr Shaikh understood exactly what I needed and the price for the service was correct. He was very flexible with the time for the survey he even understood my need of having the report ASAP. I highly recommend his services and I will use them in the future.
