building warrant

building warrant

in Scotland, a document authorizing certain building work. Almost all building work requires to be approved by the appropriate authority and a building warrant obtained. Failure to have such a warrant can mean the building is demolished; those involved in conveyancing are thus often concerned to see that any work has been so authorized. A completion certificate is issued when the work is done in conformity.
