When you have passed all inspections and are issued a Code Compliance Certificate for your building project you will have documented assurance that you have taken all the right steps under the Building Act.
A code compliance certificate is the last milestone to complete consented building work.
Obtain a building warrant of fitness to show that the requirements of the building’s compliance schedule have been fully met in the previous 12 months.
A certificate of acceptance can be issued by the Council detailing the level to which unconsented building work you have had carried out on your property, complies with the building code.
A certificate for public use is issued by the Council where it is satisfied your premises are safe for members of the public to use, before a code compliance certificate is issued.
Building work affecting the structure or weather-tightness of a residential building is ‘restricted’ under the Building Act 2004. The rules mean you must employ a licensed building practitioner to design, carry out or supervise this kind of work.
Discuss with us building work that has been carried out without a building consent so you can consider your options to comply with section 40 of the Building Act 2004.
