When the work is finished you should complete the appropriate form which was sent to you along with the Building Warrant document and the approved plans and return it to Building Standards.
Building Standards will arrange for an inspection to be made within 14 days of receiving the form and you will be notified if anything needs to be changed. Once any changes to the work have been made, a Building Standards Surveyor will inspect the work again.
If the works are satisfactory you will be sent either
- a Notice of Acceptance of Completion Certificate for an application made on or after 1st May 2005, or
- a Certificate of Completion for an application made before 1st May 2005 which indicates the Council's position in relation to your works.
The building or part of the building which has been erected, extended or altered must not be used unless the above has been followed.
The Building Warrant document, copies of the approved plans and either the Notice of Acceptance of Completion Certificate or the Certificate of Completion (as detailed above) should be kept in a safe place with the Title Deeds to your property. They are likely to be required if you decide to sell your property.
