What Houzz contributors are saying:
Get approvalBuilding Regulations can be dealt with in two different ways, explains Hugo. ‘Very simple projects are dealt with under a building notice. You submit the notice – which is typically just one side of A4 – and continue with your project. A building inspector will come along during the works to liaise with the builder. They may also want some structural calculations,’ he adds.The second way is full plans approval, in which you submit drawings up front and they are then approved and an inspector will come to check throughout the project. Either way, a building inspector will come periodically to agree that the key things have been done as per the regulations.‘One thing to be aware of is that Building Regulations don’t have to be done by the local authority, and there’s an increasing number of private surveyors who are approved by the government,’ says Hugo.
