Where unauthorised work has been carried out after 11 November 1985 there is an option to submit an application for a regularisation certificate.
This option is normally undertaken to assist in the sale of a property when no proof of building regulation approval can be provided.
Plans and details should be submitted of the work undertaken and proposals showing any additional work that is required to meet compliance with the regulations.
Inspections will be carried out to ascertain whether or not the work complies with building regulations. This may require the opening up, testing and/or sampling of materials. Some works may not be able to achieve compliance.
The applicant will be notified of any further work required to bring the building to the required standards in force at the time of the original work.
When this work has been satisfactorily completed, or if no further work is necessary, a regularisation certificate will be issued.
Please note: You will need to contact buidling control for an Individual Charge for Regularisation Applications before the application can be submitted. Once payment has been recieved your application will be processed.
