A Local Authority 'Completion Certificate' provides peace of mind and helps to make a property more attractive to prospective purchasers.
After works have been inspected at all the relevant stages, Building Control must be informed of the completion of works within 5 days of the works being completed. It is the applicants responsibility to do this. A final inspection will then be done and if all the works are satisfactory and all relevant commissioning certificates received the Building Control Surveyor will issue a Completion Certificate.
PLEASE NOTE: We are not obliged to issue completion certificates for Building Notices.
If one year has passed since completion of the work or an inspector decides it is unsuitable for a visit we are unable issue a certificate.
We can reproduce any certificates that have been issued previously. Where we can email the document no charge will be incurred, however, should this need to be posted to you an admin charge £10.00 will be payable. Please contact email@example.com for further details.
For applications received before 1995 there is likely to be no completion certificates issued, prior to this date the Council did not issue certificates in line with Government Building Regulations. However if a final inspection was completed to the satisfaction of the inspector at that time plus to the satisfaction of the inspector reviewing the case and we have records of these visits, we will issue a document covering these works at our discretion. There is a charge of £10.00 for this service. Please send your request to Building Control Services along with a cheque made payable to Craven District Council.
Unfortunately if no certificate was requested at the time of completion, no final inspection could be made or we have no records of a certificate being issued, we cannot issue certificates retrospectively.
