What work is covered?
It is a legal requirement that certain electrical, plumbing, ventilation and heating works carried out in domestic properties need to be registered with local authorities. The building regulations apply to all householders having such work carried out in their properties.
What are my responsibilities?
As a householder, it is your responsibility to ensure that work carried out complies with the current building regulations. If you do not comply, the work will not be legal. You could be prosecuted and could face a fine up to £5,000. If a registered competent person (such as a NAPIT member) is employed to carry out the work, then the responsibility is transferred to the tradesperson. NAPIT members will help you avoid breaking the law and save you time wading through the red tape.
