What are Building Regulations?

An independent approved inspector will be able to give advice and check the standard of building work during the project. Both you and the independent inspector should notify the local authority that an independent inspector is carrying out this aspect of the project. This is called an ‘Initial Notice’.  The Inspector will visit the project for routine and statutory inspections to ensure building regulations are met any related legislation is complied with.

My thanks to Danny Sullivan a very nice gentleman and would have no problem in recommending him. Regards
Suzanne, Quedgely, Gloucester
Outstanding job, could arrange a visit quickly and the cost took into account that I only required a minimal job rather than having a fixed survey fee. Went the extra mile by supplying the report in the format i required.

David did a thorough job inspecting our property and produced a comprehensive report for us. We were delighted with his professionalism and knowledge
David, Birmingham
Walid from Stabuild Ltd was absolutely brilliant. Couldn't have found him without the local surveyors direct website which was very easy to use. Thank you all! He was incredibly professional, very timely and responsive by phone and email. Wrote us a very professional report on the alterations we wished to make to our home and great value for money.
