Obtain a completion certificate
Apply for a completion certificate - paper submission
Once the work is complete, the relevant person (usually the homeowner, tenant or building owner) applies for acceptance of a completion certificate to Midlothian Building Standards.
The owner must always be named on the Completion Certificate - Submission form. The owner is always notified when a completion certification is accepted or rejected.
There is no fee for applying.
You need to submit supporting documents with your Completion Certificate - Submission form:
Apply for temporary occupation or use
With our agreement, an application for temporary occupation or use can be submitted whilst a completion certificate is being finalised.
We only grant permission for temporary occupation or use:
- for a short period
- and where the work is complete according to plans, specification and Building Regulations
- but relatively minor issues outstanding mean that we cannot issue a completion certificate.
Usually the homeowner, tenant or building owner applies to Midlothian Building Standards for temporary occupation or use.
