If one of our building control services is being used, you must tell us when work starts and ends - and let us know when other key parts of the work are happening:

When these stages are reached, the work should pause to give us time to make an inspection. We will tell you if the work does not follow the Building Regulations.
Where a building is being erected, and that building (or part of it) is occupied before completion, the person carrying out the work has to give us at least five days' notice before moving in.
If we are not told of when important stages are reached, we can ask for the work to be opened up for inspection so we can make sure it follows Building Regulations.
