LOCAL COUNCIL BUILDING COMPLIANCE
This inspection is to ensure that the buildings on your property are building compliant and is compliant with the council regulations, certifications and permits. This inspection should be carried out before the property goes on the market as the council now has the technology to investigate non compliance works on your property and the council can issue you with a Show Clause Notice.
This will avoid any issues that may arise out of a building inspection. You will need to compare council documents against the current property conditions, noting any alterations or additions and non compliant building works that are not on the council file.
