What's the process for transferring work from an AI that no longer has insurance to an LABC team?
The transfer procedure from an Approved Inspector (AI) to a local LABC team is as follows:
1. If work has started on site, all work not covered by a final certificate or part final certificate must be passed to your local council to provide the building control function.
2. Either the AI or the person carrying out the works (usually the builder, agent, designer or owner) must cancel the initial notice that was lodged with a local authority.
3. Form 7 of the Approved Inspector Regulations which cancels the Initial Notice can be submitted by the AI. Those responsible for carrying out the work should contact their council for help with the required form to cancel the Initial Notice and ‘revert’ the work to the Local Authority.
