Inspection of work
The stages of inspection are usually agreed in advance and may include:
Commencement of work - this stage is for agreeing which future stages of work should be inspected. You can discuss any queries before the work gets too far.
Intermediate stages - different types of projects will require different inspections, for example foundations, the floor, damp proofing to walls and floors, the roof structure, any drainage, structural beams and openings, fire proofing and thermal insulation.
Completion - this stage is for checking the work meets the various building regulations before it is occupied and used. A completion certificate will be issued, free of charge. This is an important document for when you sell the property.
Once you have started there is no time limit on finishing a project.
