*If Part P electrics are not applicable or if they are dealt with under the Competent Persons Scheme - £250 will be deducted from the inspection charge.

If the estimated cost of the work is more than £100,000 please phone Mark Pundsack on 020 7332 1953 or Gordon Roy on 020 7332 1962 to find out what the charge will be.

When the cost of work is between £1m and £5m the charge may be assessed as either a set charge or receive an individual quotation, whichever is appropriate.

For work estimated to cost more than £5m the charge will be assessed as part of a project specific quotation based upon a range of additional factors including complexity, contract period, floor area and number of storeys.

Project specific quotations will also be used for all new buildings as well as regularisation and reversion applications.

We have set the charges to reflect the resources that the District Surveyor's Office needs to allocate to individual projects providing value for money for our customers. To help achieve this the projects covered by set charges are assessed against both cost and category of the work involved.

Our charges are set only to recover our costs. There is no profit element for this service.

The charges scheme for the Building Control service operated by the City of London is known as Building Regulations Charges Scheme No. 4, 2021 of the City of London Corporation. This can be inspected free of charge on request along with our financial statement. The scheme has been set in accordance with The Building (Local Authority Charges) Regulations 2010.

These charges are subject to regular review and possible adjustment.​
