When payment is due
The charges for building regulations are normally submitted in two stages:
- plan charge - this is paid at the point of application submission
- inspection charge - you will be invoiced for this payment after the first relevant inspection has been carried out following the commencement of work on site
Building notice charge
If you submit a building notice you must pay the charge at the time of submission. This covers all necessary checks and site inspections in relation to the work described in the notice.
The charge is calculated at 120% of the applicable building notice charge. No VAT is payable on a regularisation charge.
Paying by instalments
We may agree to the payment of charges by instalments.
The amount and timing of instalment payments must be agreed prior to the submission of a building notice, or the commencement of work in relation to a full plans submission.
Plan charges cannot be paid by instalments.
