Property certificates

Building Control service administers property certificates.

The Building Regulations specify minimum standards covering health, safety and welfare for all buildings (private, commercial and public). The property certificate service enables a prospective purchaser (or their solicitor) to find out if any work carried out on the property has been approved and meets the statutory requirements.

Part of the service involves a check being undertaken to identify any outstanding breaches of the statutory requirements, and if the council has taken or intends to take any legal action.
