We issue Completion Certificates to certify that the Council is satisfied that the work complies with the relevant requirements of the Building Regulations, for this reason, it is very important that we are called in to inspect various stages of work as it progresses together with notification of completion as soon as the works are finalised on site.
A Completion Certificate is a valuable document that should be kept safe (preferably with your deeds) as without it you may have difficulty selling your property.
Failure to notify us for a completion inspection may result in us, either not being able to carry out an inspection at a later date or additional fees maybe incurred.
Unfortunately, many people neglect to notify the Council that works are complete. Where, no formal Completion Inspection was made, a Completion Certificate would not have been issued. Often, in the final stages of selling a property, the absence of a Completion Certificate becomes an issue.
