7. Work starts

What we will do

We will undertake an inspection at this stage if so stated in your inspection service plan.

What you will need to do (including a builder, architect or agent acting for you)

You must notify us when site works are about to start work. Whilst in most cases site works may be started at the owners risk prior to the plans being approved, there are some circumstances when certain documents and approval need to be in place before works can be started. It is always worth discussing with us prior to work starting, especially for new dwellings or where new foundations are to be built within 3 meters of a public sewer.


You must notify us 2 days before work starts on site.


Inspection fees will be invoiced.
