Hull Building Control Supplementary Charges
Building Control Archived Applications (over 3 years lapsed since last site inspection)
If you are selling a property that has been extended or altered, you may need to provide evidence to prospective purchasers that any relevant building work has been inspected and approved by Building Control. That evidence is in the form of a Building Regulations Completion Certificate.
Hull Building Control only issues Completion Certificates to home owners or their appointed agents such as solicitors. In cases where the Council is not told that building work has been completed, or the building is occupied without addressing outstanding Building Regulation matters, a certificate is not issued. Many home owners/builders who undertake building works fail to request a Completion Certificate and their application is archived.
Commencing 1st December 2018 a fee will be payable to re-open archived building regulations applications for the purposes of issuing a Completion Certificate.
We regret that we will not be able to re-open archived building regulation applications deposited before 1st January 2000.

Please note - if additional site inspections are required this may incur additional charges
