He is forming an opinion based on a visual non obtrusive survey. He will confirm no involvement during the building works and the cert will have this at the bottom (or should have).
It means nothing and is basically a piece of paper to get through the conveyance process.

What else do you expect a Construction Professional to do.
Firstly they must have a Professional Qualification. They can only certify what is visible, and must ensure that everything that is visible is in Compliance with the Building Regulations and Planning - and provide written Certification of same, and provide Professional Indemnity Insurance to cover the Certificate for a Statutory period of 6 years, and can be sued and deemed negligent if something that is Certified is not in compliance.
Without this Certification the Conveyancing may fail.
If Clients want an Opinion on all of the works, they should retain a Professional before the works commence.
If the client ops out of the Building Control Management System (BCMS) they will get an Opinion on Compliance.
If the Client is building a dwellinghouse. and don’t wish to get an Opinion on Compliance, the Client can choose to not opt out, and they will obtain a Certificate of Compliance which cannot contain the word “Opinion”
Mr Eastwood thanks for you advice. If I ever meet you for real the first couple of rounds are on me :)
Thank you again and I’m on for the rounds😂😂🍺🍺
So are we opening up works to inspect sub floor build up, structural connections and bearing?
drainage runs ??
My original comment is correct, it will be an opinion based on a visual survey with many caveats about not being involved during the construction. Fliball will not be able to sue the anyone as the guy providing the cert will have confirmed it’s a visual inspection only and it appears to comply with the regulations as stated.
Nothing wrong with that, it’s a conveyancing cert. Happens every day.
No idea why your referencing the different types of CN’s here, we’ve been through that already and are irrelevant.
