Inspection of works

Statutory inspections

Certain stages of work must be inspected (referred to as statutory inspections). These include inspection of foundations, damp proof courses, drains, materials under floors.

Other visits are made to check on fire protection, thermal and sound insulation, access for disabled, stairways etc.

A final inspection of work is carried out upon completion. It is essential that the Building Control surveyor be notified so that any problems may be rectified before the contractor leaves the site.

A Completion Certificate will be issued free of charge. This is a valuable document that may be required when you sell your property.
