We offer advice on many aspects of domestic building work including loft conversions, electrical safety, replacement windows and doors and exempt buildings.
It is important that you comply with the Building Regulations. If you fail to notify the council of work being carried out, you may be committing a criminal offence.
Evidence of Building Regulations approval may also be needed if you wish to sell your house in the future.
A competent persons scheme has been set up for certain areas of building work, including electrical works and replacement windows and doors. Information on these can be found on the pages below. If you do use a self-certified contractor, you must make sure they are registered for the work being done. When the work is completed, they must issue you with a certificate to confirm that the work complies with the building regulations.
Even if your building is classed as exempt, you may need to comply with Part P of the Building Regulations, which covers Electrical Safety. Further information on this is available on the link on the left.
If you are having construction or refurbishment work done, you may also need to notify the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and you may have other duties as well. Find out more by clicking on the external link.
