Property Enquiry & Inspection Services
The services below (formerly known as qualified statement or letter of comfort) are currently being revised. Additional information is available in the 'Property Inspection Services' and 'Property Enquiry Services' publications, highlighted blue below, or please contact us if you need any further information.
Property Inspection Services
We can inspect work carried out without a building warrant and, if satisfactory, issue a letter (sometimes called a "letter of comfort") to confirm that no enforcement action will be taken in terms of unauthorised building works or against any oustanding Building warrants (a building warrant where the certificate of completion has not been issued).
It is only suitable for unauthorised work carried out before the 1st May 2005 or outstanding Building Warrants submitted before the 1st May 2005.
All other work that required a Building Warrant and was carried out after the 1st May 2005 should be subject to a late Building Warrant Application or Completion Certificate Submission under the current Building (Scotland) Act. 2003.
Property Enquiry Services
We also offer services to check the application history of a property and to provide copies of any relevant documents or drawings. Please see our 'Property Enquiry Services' publication for more information and current charges.
