We know this is a confusing area that many clients are faced when obtaining quotes for their project. We hear many clients saying “Some builders say this” “some say that” what are the fact’s as I don’t want the council around later requesting removal of my project?
These are the Facts!!
Most if not all Building projects do require a Building permit minimum and dependant upon your (2) local council planning and other building overlays etc., other approvals beyond the standard Building permit may be required. This issue may also relate to location of your proposed project.
To enquire if you need a building permit please follow the following link to the Building Commission – Victoria to satisfy yourself - Building Commission
Or contact your local councils building or planning department to ensure you’re getting the right advice concerning your liability in getting a building project completed without the minimum building permits required.
The facts are by ensuring your project is permitted you have the peace of mind that an independent Building Surveyor viewed and approved the project and all your warranties are valid.
Totally Outdoors undertake to professionally arrange all these matters for you from start to finish through The Project Centre – Architectural Design & Drafting to ensure what can be done will be done to arrange all the approvals required.
Totally Outdoors does not build projects without a Building Permit if required by law.
DIY Projects and Material Only Sales: Totally Outdoors advises all clients to ensure that building permits are obtained prior to commencing their project plus to ensure your manufacturers warranty is not voided by incorrect installation practises. Totally Outdoors can assist with Plans & Permits for these sales upon application.
