About Tandridge building control



Based in Oxted, the Tandridge Building Control team has six professionally qualified building control surveyors, a structural engineer and dedicated admin and support staff.

What we do

We are here to make sure buildings are constructed and altered so they comply with the building regulations, dangerous structures are made safe and demolitions are carried out as safely as possible.

Our professionally qualified and experienced team of surveyors examine and comment on plans for development and regularly inspect work that is in progress. Their wide knowledge of materials and building methods is available to you at all stages of the building process.

Our surveyors are all members of the professional organisation CABE and are constantly updating their knowledge.

How we can help:

  • Unique local knowledge
    We have extensive knowledge of local conditions from type of ground or drainage to existing structures.
  • Advice
    We offer free pre-application advice and once your application is submitted, offer on-going assistance through to completion.
  • One stop shop
    We provide close links with other council departments and the Surrey fire and rescue service.
  • Inspection service
    All our surveyors are Oxted based and we normally offer a same day service as long as a visit is booked before 10am. We also offer timed appointments if needed to ensure your builder is not held up on site and is able to discuss any issues quickly as work progresses.
