Have you received an unexpected visit from council advising you that you have unapproved works? Or perhaps you have listed your property for sale (or purchased a new property) and the solicitor has discovered that you have building work that is not authorised.

This can be a very stressful experience, especially if you had no idea that what you have on site is ‘illegal’.

Unapproved works can vary from a simple deck, to a complete renovation, and obtaining the relevant council sign-off for this can seem like an impossible task.

It’s true that this can be a minefield to negotiate, but working through all the council and building controls for a Building Certificate (BC) to obtain a positive outcome is what we specialise in. The key to a positive outcome with unapproved works, is to act quickly before council impose a fine and deadlines to demolish.

Give us a call to have a chat to one of our highly experienced consultants who will help to put your mind at ease!
