Building Regulations are complex and far-reaching, but essentially make sure that building or alternation work completed achieves or betters minimum standards of safety and energy efficiency. Building Regulation approval is distinct from Planning Permission, but is likely to be required alongside it, and you must check whether you need approval before you construct or change buildings in certain ways. Without approval you won’t have the necessary certificates of compliance that you will need when you want to next sell your home.
Draycott Chartered Surveyors can advise as to what Building Regulation approval is required for your particular development and prepare detailed drawings and specifications required for submission to the local authorities. We can also advise in instances where a Building Notice will be adequate or when the work involves a listed building and more complex applications are required to protect the character of the building.
