Building Warrant Fees

Building Standards - Scaffolding on a building

The purpose of Building Standards is to ensure that building work on both new and existing buildings meet reasonable standards. However, this does often require a fee to be paid with a Building Warrant application.

The fees payable for Building Warrant applications are set by the Scottish Executive through the Building (Procedure) (Scotland) Regulations 2004. The fee for an application is based on the 'value of the works'. In calculating the value, normal market costs must be used rather than discounted costs which may be achieved. If the local authority feels the estimated value is incorrect they may check the amount by reference to established indices of building costs, for example the RICS Building Cost Information Survey of Tender Prices.
