Building Information Certificates

If you’re buying or selling a property, it ensures a particular building and its land can remain as is for 7 years, without any regulatory action being taken.

A Building Information Certificate is usually obtained by a buyer or seller of a property to ensure a particular building and its land can remain as is for 7 years, without any regulatory action being taken by us. It can apply to the whole or part of a building.

The application may be lodged by:

  • any person with the property owner's consent
  • the owner's solicitor or agent
  • a purchaser who has entered into a contract to purchase the property
  • a purchaser's solicitor or agent
  • any public authority that has notified the owner of its intention to apply for the certificate

Application process

You can apply for a Building Information Certificate by completing the application form and lodging upon payment at our Kiewa Street office. If you hold an account, you can email your application to us.

To determine an application, we’ll need to inspect the building and review our records and documentation submitted as part of the application. We’ll get in touch to arrange the inspection or if any further information is required.

A Building Information Certificate is issued under Section 6.7 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979. Please note these certificates were formerly known as building certificates.

Cost

The cost of a Building Information Certificate can be viewed in our fees and charges. You’ll need to pay an additional inspection fee if we need to carry out more than one inspection.
