Guidance Notes
This application form is for LABC Reversion Applications only.
Please read the notes carefully before completing the form on pages 3 and 4.
General Guidance
A Reversion Application is intended to be used in respect of the Building Regulations 2010 where an Initial Notice
from a Corporate Approved Inspector has ceased to be in force and the application is to revert back to the Local Au-
thority.
A Reversion Application only applies to work commenced after November 1985.
Where a Local Authority receives a Reversion Application, they may require the applicant to take such reasonable steps, in-
cluding the laying open of the building work for inspection by the Authority, making tests and taking samples, as the Authority
thinks appropriate to ascertain that the work, if any, is required to secure that the relevant requirements are met. If an appli-
cant is unwilling to comply with any reasonable request they run the risk that the Local Authority will ne unable to judge
whether the work satisfies the applicable Regulations.
These notes are for general guidance only, particulars regarding the Reversion Application are contained in Regulation 21 of
the Building Regulations 2010 (as amended) and, in respect of fees the current fees/charges Regulations.
The Reversion Application is without prejudice to the powers of a Local Authority under Section 36 of the Building Act 1984 or
of any other statutory requirement or enactment affecting the building.
Please note it is the owner of the building and their builders responsibility to comply with the Building Regulations. Persons
carrying out building work or making a change of use of a building are reminded that permission may also be required under
the Town and Country Planning Act, Highways Act, Housing Act,
Public Health Act, etc.

subsequent approved plans may require amending or

jected, no further charges are payable on re-submission of the application if it is the same proposed work. Once we have ap-
proved your plans you will receive an electronic approval notice.

Inspections
The scope of these will have to be agreed with the Inspecting Local Authority, and they will require payment of a separate
inspection fee to cover these.
Completion Certificates
Following satisfactory completion of the building work, the Inspecting Local Authority Building Control will issue an electronic
completion certificate confirming that your project has been inspected and that, as far as it can be ascertained, it complies
with the Building Regulations. You will need this certificate when you wish to sell your property.
Electrical Installations
Part P of the Building Regulations requires that all notifiable, domestic electrical installations are designed and installed to
protect people against injury and fire.
Where these works are carried out by an Approved Installer registered under the Governments Competent Person Scheme
a Building Regulation application is not required.
Where these works are carried out by an Installer qualified to inspect and test the work by issuing a BS7671 certificate, but
not registered on a Part P Competent Person Scheme, a Building Regulation application is required and an administrative
fee is payable. Proof of the electricians qualification will be required.
Where these works are undertaken by a person who cannot issue BS7671 certification (DIY installation), a Building Regula-
tion application is required. The Local Authority will arrange for a third party inspection and testing of the electrical installation
and a fee is payable.
