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.

The response speed from the team was really quick, really efficient. We were able to check the drawing ideas in literally 1.5days of putting down the deposit. We are now waiting for the planning approval. Can’t wait for the 8 weeks to be over. Thanks Extension Architecture

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Yorke Architecture. If you are looking to hire this business you will be getting a highly skilled company, dedicated to producing excellent quality work. The project involved considerable dialogue between me and our architect; by the end of the project I will end with an exceptional family home of an unique design that maximises every opportunity that could be gleaned from the project.

Thank you for the double storey side extension drawings. I was pleased to find out that Extension Architecture has really good knowledge on conservation areas, and listed buildings. I was told by two local architecture that it was difficult to gain the side extension as the local conservation area guidelines, but with the advise of EA,we regained our lost confidence, and have managed to follow through and now the permission has been received, in my hands! Many thanks for all your efforts and I was extremely happy with the result. Expect a call from my neighbour Maggie, on their extension

Excellent and very good service, completely professional. I have approached 4D Planning consultant for one plot pre-application advice, they advised very good and provided the best information to take the decision.
