Our frequently asked Retrospective Inspections & Permits questions

Believe it or not, this happens frequently within the building industry. We’ve had several cases of clients being left with half jobs done and their certifiers in liquidation. Once we can confirm that the previous certifier has been disengaged or verify the business has gone into liquidation, we can then guide you through the process of completing your project.

You will be required to have a retrospective Building Permit issued for compliance and
then satisfy any final requirements made by the Certifier. This process should take between 15 and 20 business days.

Once we’ve issued your Decision Notice, it will specify the listed inspections required and documents that must be supplied before we can issue your final forms.
