Dealing with Local Building Control for French Doors
in In my home (includes DIY) MoneySaving

Looking at having some French doors 1200mm fitted by creating an opening between two rooms. The wall is an interior weight bearing wall.
Had a three builders around and one says there is no need to get building control as we use standard 100 x 145 x 1500 lintel, the other says use 1500mm Catnic BXD100 steel lintel and the third says possible building regs may need notifying but thats free.
I am confused. I tried calling local building control but they seem to be unable to provide support - please put in an application - I think about £400 just to find out if I need to notify them or not.
If this is the case I might as well not go ahead.
