Introducing the LABC App & Next Day Inspections

The LABC Inspection Request App 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.  The App will go live on 2nd January 2019. 

Next day inspections will also be introduced from 2nd January 2019.  You will be able to book your inspection via the LABC App, via email at or by telephoning 01255 686111 up to 4pm each day to request a visit the following day.  The team will coordinate workloads and tailor inspections to your specific needs.
