Sometimes building work is carried out without an application being made. This could lead to enforcement action being taken and could prejudice a future sale of the property.
There is a procedure where a retrospective application may be made for a regularisation certificate. This involves the submission of a regularisation application. The submission of an application does not guarantee that a certificate will be issued. Parts of the works may need to be opened up and inspected to determine if they are adequate and remedial works may be required before a certificate can be issued.
Further details about the regularisation application are available by contacting building control.
