Article on work exempt from requiring a building consent.
Do you know when work is exempt from requiring a building consent? This first article in a three-part series explains exempt building work and some of the common and measurable exemptions.
Checking if you need a building consent is an important step in any building project. If a building consent isn’t issued and was required, the council may issue an infringement notice. It could also seek to prosecute the homeowner – with possible heavy fines – who is then likely to want answers from you.
