A huge amount of paperwork surrounds every building project, and the penalties for making mistakes can be high. London Build and Restore will help steer you through the administrative minefield of planning regulations, building controls and energy performance certificates.
Before you start work on your property you need to know what you can do – and not do – with it. We know the rules, and who to ask. We know what’s possible within your budget.
We guide you smoothly through your application for planning permission with local authorities and – if necessary – with English Heritage and local preservation orders.
Building control certificate
A local authority building control certificate is your guarantee that your property is built or refurbished in accordance with all the current regulations.
We deal with building control officers to make sure your project meets all the building regulations, the standards and the current code of practice.
We’ll interpret the building regulations for you and handle the paperwork so that your project runs smoothly.
When we’ve done this, we can call in the team, order the supplies, and start work.
Energy performance certificates
Since October 2008 all properties – homes, commercial and public buildings – need an energy performance certificate. A good EPC score makes a property more saleable or lettable, and keeps the bills down. For some properties you can get grants towards the cost of energy-saving measures. We’ll find out, and show you what you can achieve within your budget.
