Scottish Building Standards for minor work
If you're doing any type of minor work in your home, like installing a bathroom in your house, it needs to meet Scottish Building Standards.
Even if you do not need a building warrant for the work you are having done, you should still get professional advice to make sure the work meets building regulations.
You should always check with your local council, even if the work is minor.
Scottish Building Standards for work to a building
If you're doing any type of building work that will change things, such as increasing the floor space of your home or changing the structure of the roof, it's likely you'll need to apply to your local council for a Building Warrant.
If you're not sure about Scottish Building Standards
If you're not sure whether you need to apply for a Building Warrant you can ask your local council's Building Standards service.
