Charges and fees

Haringey Building Control Charges Scheme is set in accordance with the requirements of the Building (Local Authority Charges) Regulations 2010. The current scheme, known as the Haringey Building Control Charges Scheme 6 2012, which came into effect on 2 April 2012, will be replaced by the Haringey Building Control Charges Scheme 7 2015, with effect from 7 April 2015.

In the new Scheme there is one Charges Schedule that contains a set of 'standard charges' as well as the familiar table of charges based on the estimated cost of works. Where the estimated cost of works exceeds £120,000 you should contact Building Control in order to obtain an individual quote.

It should also be noted that when calculating the charge payable you may have to take into account more than one 'standard charge' as well as a charge based upon the estimated cost of works - although in cases such as these you are advised to contact Building Control in order to discuss your works, as a discount may be applicable.

The charge is generally split into two parts:

  • Plan Charge - submitted with your application
  • Inspection Charge - Payable as soon as you begin work

Please note: Where you submit a Building Notice, both Charges must be paid when you submit the Notice and you will be charged for the Completion Certificate at the end of the job;

Where you request a Regularisation Certificate, the charge is the Building Notice Charge plus 20 percent (this charge does not attract VAT).

In addition to the Charges explained above, payable in connection with Building Regulation applications, there are also a number of Miscellaneous Fees that Building Control charge for a range of services.

The New Charges Schedules and/or the Miscellaneous Fees and guidance on how the fees are applied are available in the attached files section below or by contacting Building Control.
