If you carry out work, which does not comply with the regulations, we may serve a notice requiring you to pull down, remove or alter the work within 28 days.

You can also be fined for contravening the building regulations. If you fail to give the council  notice at the various stages of building work, we can serve a notice requiring you to cut into, lay open or pull down as much of the work as necessary to check whether you have complied; and can then require you to modify or remove the offending work.

You may also experience difficulties in re-selling your property if building work has been carried out without obtaining the necessary approval under building regulations.
