Hello Folks, Got a few questions regarding the process involved in 'signing off' a build... My main reason to ask this is to find out what is the least we can have complete on our build before it is deemed 'habitable' (ie we can move in). I thought I knew the answer to this until someone recently told me I would require EVERYTHING as detailed on the plans to be complete before being 'signed off'. I find this hard to believe! Now the term signed off is getting me confused as from what I have gathered from reading on here and listening to various people there are 2 main signing off procedures, 1 being building control and the other a habitation certificate. Is this correct? Also when does the VAT reclaim process begin? As always thanks for the help! 😁
Hey all We are living in temp accommodation whilst I do the build ; the boss is finding this difficult!! If later we moved into the build and it wasn’t complete but had a usable bathroom would the bco sign it off as complete because we are living in it ? My concern is once that happens we only have 3 months to submit all the vat returns and yet the truly completed project ( and therefore valid receipts ) could be another year away . So can I live in it but not have bco sign it off ???? ?
