Increase in Building Warrant Fees from 1 July 2017
Monday, 3 July 2017
The Scottish Government has announced changes to the Building Standards fees for applications received from the 1st July 2017.
The changes include:
- Increases to building warrant related fixed fees and incremental fee steps relating to the estimated value of the work. Includes demolitions, conversions, work started or completed without a building warrant, and extending the duration of a building warrant.
- Increases to discounts for providing a certificate from an approved certifier of design or approved certifier of construction. Discounts are fixed amounts for estimated values of work not exceeding £100,000 and percentages for estimated values of work exceeding £100,000.
- Changes to allow the warrant fee to be discounted when the applicant advises in writing that they intend to submit a certificate of design after they have made their building warrant application and before the warrant is granted.
