3. Before work begins

Certass contractors will provide you with a consumer contract explaining the work to be undertaken.

We recommend you make notes on your specification to ensure that there are no misunderstandings regarding your requirements.

4. After Completion

All Certass contractors are required to provide all of their customers with a written guarantee to cover the installation work.

Furthermore, Certass contractors are required to provide you with additional peace of mind in the form of an Insurance Backed Guarantee covering breaches to Building Regulations in the event that they cease to trade.

5. Registration

Once the work has finished, your Certass contractor will register your installation with Certass within 21 days of the installation being deemed complete.

On your behalf Certass will, where applicable for Building Regulation requirements, notify your Local Authority of the installation completed at your property address. Certass will issue you with your legally required Building Regulation Compliance Certificate as proof of compliance*

*This will be required by your solicitor should you wish to sell your property. If you’ve lost your certificate, either you or your solicitor can contact Certass directly and order a replacement. There is a small charge of £24 including VAT for replacement certificates ordered 28 days after original issue date.
