Who do I contact?

Next day inspections are available as long as they are booked before 4pm the previous day.  Inspections can be booked by phone or email.  We are introducing the LABC Inspection Request App which links directly to our building control software enabling you to request an inspection at any time of the day or night.   The App is available for Apple and Android  devices and can be downloaded for free.
