What does it cost to cancel an initial notice and revert work to my local council?
When work is ‘reverted’ to a local LABC team, you will need to provide them with as much information as possible to help them determine whether the work so far complies with the relevant regulations. All local authorities are obliged to charge a fee for work reverted to them and this fee will be individually assessed based on the size of the project and the amount of time needed to determine compliance with the building regulations.
So any information you have about inspections undertaken so far, plus any building plans, structural calculations or photographs of the work in progress will be of great assistance and may help to limit the council’s fees. The more information you provide the easier it will be for the LABC team to assess, let you know of the next steps and calculate applicable fees. Your contractor, designer or agent should be able to help.
Other records e.g. Competent Person Scheme notifications for things like electrical work can be obtained from the tradesperson, their scheme or other local authority records.
