A Local Authority 'Completion Certificate' provides peace of mind and helps to make a property more attractive to prospective purchasers.
Blaby Building Control will issue a Completion Certificate when we are satisfied that the work complies with the relevant requirements of Building Regulations, in so far as we have been able to ascertain.
A Completion Certificate is a valuable document that should be kept safe (preferably with your deeds) as without it you may have difficulty selling your property.
Legal entitlement to a Completion Certificate is subject to conditions. In cases where the Council is not told that building work has been completed, or the building is occupied without addressing outstanding Building Regulations matters, a certificate will not be issued.
For applications received before 2000 there is likely to be no Completion Certificate issued. Prior to this date the Council did not issue certificates. However if a final inspection was completed to the satisfaction of the Inspecting Surveyor then we will issue a document covering these works at our discretion.
If the building work has not been satisfactorily completed, further visits may be required before a Completion Certificate will be issued.
If work was satisfactorily completed but you have misplaced your copy of your certificate a replacement may be provided by Blaby Building Control at a cost of £40.00.
We will endeavour to email a copy of the certificate within 5 days of your written request.

Blaby Building Control does not issue Completion Certificates for works that were undertaken by any other approved Competent Persons or other approved bodies who may supervise the works, as directed by Central Government.
