Building Inspections

Councils must undertake inspections in accordance with the inspection related Practice Directions under the Act.

On completing an inspection, a record of that inspection must be accurately recorded within the Inspections dashboard against the applicable inspection record. This is critical to ensure that follow-up inspections take place as required, and the council’s inspection records are maintained and upheld.

When the council decides to undertake a re-inspection (to ensure the necessary work has taken place to address the breach, issue or fault) an email or letter is sent, on recertification, to the applicant or builder using the Submit Mandatory Re-inspection notification via the Your Applications dashboard.
