Building works that require a permit
Common building works that require an asset protection permit:
- construction of a dwelling, unit, garage, pool house or building;
- demolition or removal of a structure;
- extension to a dwelling;
- additions or alterations to a dwelling;
- construction or installation of a swimming pool or spa;
- fencing with continuous concrete strip footing, brick or masonry fencing;
- commercial or industrial development; and
- structural or civil works.
Other building works may need a permit: if what you are planning is not listed, please contact us for a discussion.
Building works that do not require a permit
Common building works that do not require an asset protection permit include:
- building decking or veranda
- re-stumping, re-blocking or underpinning of a home
- installing a pool or spa safety barrier.
Once we receive the application, we will inspect our assets surrounding the work site and report on their condition.
Without a valid permit, your building site may be in breach of our General Local Law 2015, and an infringement will be sent to the owner for failing to comply.
We will assume that our property was in good condition before building, and any damage was caused by new building works on your property.
