VIC Hendry advises a Certificate of Final Inspection is a statutory document issued under the Building Act 1993 and Building Regulations 2006 nominating compliance with the building permit documentation and will contain a determination/schedule of all the essential safety measures affected in the building.
Hendry provides clients with a certificate of final inspection (CFI) upon the completion of building works stemming from a building permit. We see the need to provide an explanation of the CFI process as a number of stakeholders are confused or lack adequate knowledge to appreciate what is required in obtaining a CFI from a building surveyor.
/ STATUTORY DOCUMENT
A CFI is a statutory document issued under the Building Act 1993 and the Building Regulations 2006 and nominates compliance with the building permit documentation. A CFI is issued by a building surveyor for extensions, alterations or building works to existing buildings that do not require the issuing of an occupancy permit.
/ CERTIFICATE OF FINAL INSPECTION: PROCESS
The Building Act 1993 and Building Regulations 2006 contain the statutory provisions that guide an applicant and a building surveyor to successfully issue a CFI.
