Regularising unauthorised works or works carried out without the proper building regulation permission applies to all work carried out after 11 November 1985, enabling you to obtain approval for the works.
The main problem with unauthorised work is found when the property is sold. Solicitors require building regulation approval for all extensions, rooms in the roof, internal alterations, new windows and electrical alterations.
Please contact us and discuss the unauthorised work in detail. We will visit your property and access the work to assess whether it will meet the current building regulations, or if not, how it can be regularised. A charge will be made for this service.
Please note that work will need to be opened up or exposed. Plans and structural calculations may be required to show compliance. You must then submit the regularisation form and pay the subsequent charges as stated in our fee schedule.
- Regularisation work does not carry a VAT charge but does carry a 20% penalty over the standard or building notice charge for the works. Once the surveyor is satisfied the work complies, a formal regularisation certificate will be issued.
