Do you have an illegal structure on your property which you need approval for?

When it comes to buy or sell a property, you need to make sure that all the structures including patios, sheds, pool fencing, spa, swimming pool etc. have been approved. If this is not the case, then a retrospective approval is required which involves various sorts of specialised work such as a building surveyor, an engineer and a draftsperson if needed.

According to the statistics from Archicenter, 29% of Australian homes have illegal constructions which are commonly structures like sheds, alfresco areas and patios. In extreme cases, the council may require to knock down the structure for non-compliance with the BCA and related policies.

At Green Start Consulting our building surveyor can assist you determining whether or not the unauthorised work complies with the BCA and R-Codes and prepare the required documentation in order to have the structures approved by the local council.

Over the years, we have developed our expertise in providing our clients the best services to ensure a smooth and easy process in getting unauthorised structures approved. Our building surveyor works closely with a team of draftees and engineers to prepare accurate plans showing the works and engineer’s certified structural report and therefore determine the level of rectification work required to achieve compliance.
