Unless you have a ticket from a certified fitter you'll fall foul of building regs when fitting UPVC windows, assuming you then attempt to sell the property.

Or is you apply for building regs from the council they inspect and if they are happy will give you certificate, costs around £127 thou

So are you telling me that if I replace the rotten kitchen window in my own home I have to get the local council to come and inspect it at an extra cost of £127? You're having a laugh, right?

As above the glazing is date stamped these days but I cant see whats to stop you changing your old rotten wood frames for these and then when you eventually go to move apply for an approval for all the frames you have changed since you owned the house, its still just the one fee.
Talk to a local DG installer, he will know all the wrangles to get around the regs ;-)

If you sell your house you will be asked for a fensa certificate of building regs for your replacement windows. If they are fitted for you the fitter will suply a certificate if not you have to have building regs.
It cost us £127 but different councils may charge different prices!!!

Read this it might help... there is a section which mentions replacement of rotten frames
