Building Control useful links

Below is a list of websites which give further information on aspects of the Building Regulations.

LABC - LABC is the member organisation representing all local authority building control departments in England and Wales. Contains information on the LABC New Home Warranty and warranties for speculative residential housing, social housing and self build.

LABC Latent Gold Commercial Buildings Defects Guarantee - LABC Latent Gold is a structural defects insurance for commercial buildings up to £15 million in value and by arrangement for buildings valued over £15 million. It is delivered by LABC via local authority building control departments in partnership with Oval Insurance Broking, with Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (Allianz) as underwriters.

LABC Latent Gold provides a low cost way to avoid the high risks and legal complexities associated with collateral warranties.

New Homes Consumer Code - The new Consumer Code for Home Builders became active for purchasers of new homes on or after 1 April 2010. LABC New Home Warranty is signed up to promote and use the code.

It clarifies the responsibilities and actions required by developers and warranty providers to improve service and complaint resolution to customers of new homes. It is the result of the Barker Review in 2004 and the Office of Fair Trading Study in 2008.
