BWOF And How We Can Help You!

Any building with fixed features in it such as below, may require a Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF). Call us and we will advise. The responsibility for the annual issuing of the BWOF is the building owner, not the tenant, so don’t leave it to them.

If you contract us to issue your BWOF annually, we will carry out the Independent Qualified Person (IQP) inspections for you, and ensure any other IQPs for other features have done their inspections. We receive their annual report (called a '12a Report'), which states that everything is okay and that all the tests have been carried out on that particular feature.

Their reports plus ours confirm that all the features in your building comply to the standards and we can then issue a BWOF which we register with the council, deliver to your premises and fix it to the entrance to the building in a frame.
