When your application is approved by your local council building control team, you will usually be provided with an Inspection Service Plan before you start work. This outlines the stages of work that require inspection. It will vary depending on the size and complexity of your project, the age of your home, the construction type, ground conditions, and your builder’s experience.
You’ll need to inform your local council building control team when you start and when you reach the stages outlined in your Inspection Service Plan so the surveyors can carry out site visits.
Once the work has been completed to the satisfaction of your local building control team, you will be issued with a ‘Completion Certificate’ to show all the work is up to standard. Watch the video below for further details...
