What will the local authority surveyor do?
We can’t assume things have been done correctly if there are no records or you can’t see important parts of the construction. If so, unfortunately it may be necessary to uncover some parts of the work.
This will be handled on a case by case basis – the local authority building control surveyors will work with homeowners, their designers and contractors to minimise any intrusion and the aim is always to keep this to a minimum.
However, we will need to establish all the work complies with the building regulations so that we can issue you with the completion certificate.
Ultimately, this gives you peace of mind and protects you and your investment.
