Party Wall Notice:
First off what is a party wall notice? – A party wall notice is served to your neighbours when you are planning to build an extension on your home. The reason for this is because you are likely to build an extension that affects the party wall that you both share. For more information on this please refer to the following booklet: partywall-booklet
Building Inspector Site Visits:
Once we start on your new home extension a local council building inspector will come at different stages to inspect the build. This is to ensure we are building to regulations and the quality meets government standards. the site inspectors will visit periodically right up until the extension is completed.
Once your home extension is completed and the building inspectors have visited, made sure that your Home Extension has been built to a high standard and within building regulation rules. You will then be issued with a Completion Certificate from your local council.
Building regulations make sure that your house extension is built to a standard acceptable in the UK, this is beneficial to you and your family and should be taken seriously. Things like plumbing, electrical work and roofing regulations are reviewed and surveyed. At R&B Builders we build everything to standard, we are fully certified as well as regulated. We have put together a guide on our website regarding Building Regulations that explains everything that is involved.
We understand how important it is for you to make sure you get the best value for your money without compromising on quality. You also want to know that we can do the job and it will be completed on time.
