Building Permits

Building permits are important for several reasons. 

They are essential for legal compliance, quality control, property value preservation, insurance coverage, future transactions, and ensuring occupant safety.
They help maintain standards and protect you and your family.


Compliance with building codes helps prevent potential hazards, such as structural failures, fire risks, and unsafe living conditions.

Quality Control:
Your Building Surveyor will review construction plans and inspect the work being done at various stages. This helps ensure that the construction meets the required standards.

Preservation of Property Values:
Building permits help ensure that neighboring properties are not negatively impacted by substandard or incompatible construction.

Insurance and Liability:
Having proper permits in place can help protect property owners by ensuring that they are adequately covered in case of accidents, property damage, or legal disputes. It can also help demonstrate that due diligence was exercised in the construction process.

Future Sale or Lease: The absence of permits can raise concerns about the quality and safety of the work done, potentially affecting the property’s value and marketability.

Occupancy and Safety Certifications: Building permits often involve inspections at different stages of construction, including a final inspection before occupancy. Upon successful completion, your Building Surveyor will issue certificates of occupancy, indicating that the structure is legally habitable.
