Carrying out works
Once you have received our letter of approval, we will instruct the chosen contractor to start the approved works.
The work must be done by the chosen contractor. If they are not able to carry out the work, you'll need to get permission from the council before instructing another contractor, otherwise your grant could be withdrawn.
We may reclaim any payments made to the contractor directly from you, if you can't comply with the grant conditions.
If you are using our agency services, our surveyor will visit the site regularly to supervise the works and deal with the contractor on your behalf.
Otherwise you'll need to ensure the contractor's work is completed to a satisfactory standard, and done by our schedule. We can still inspect the work at any time to ensure all requirements are being met.
