Housing Control administration fees to increase from 1 January 2013

Monday 10 December 2012

The fees charged to cover the cost of processing applications for employment-related Right to Work documents and for Open Market dwelling inspections will increase from 1 January 2013, announced the Housing Department today.

The Department has confirmed that there will still be no administration charge for processing applications for housing licences and other Right to Work documents that do not link a person to a specific job, although it will continue to apply a charge for replacing lost documents.

"The fees have not been increased since they were first introduced in 2009" said Esther Ingrouille, Director of Housing Control, "but at that time we made it clear that charges would be likely to increase in the future, once the Department had reduced the turn-around times for employment-related Right to Work documents. I am pleased to say that we have worked really hard to improve the service that we deliver to our paying customers, with over 99% of all employment-related applications now being processed within the service levels agreed by the Housing board, details of which will be available on the States of Guernsey website early next year."

The table below shows the full fees breakdown:
