About building compliance notices
A building compliance notice can only be obtained by completing an application with your local council. The local council must then issue a building compliance notice, or a non-compliance notice within 20 days of receiving the application. A service provider has 20 business days after receiving the non-compliance notice to appeal the decision. Please note that obtaining a building compliance notice from the local council can take up to 6 months so please organise it as soon as possible.
About our criminal history checks
A criminal history check will be conducted where a date and place of birth has been requested. This includes all individuals, partners, executive officers and associates.
If you have had an application granted by the Residential Services Unit in the last 12 months, it may not be deemed necessary to have another criminal history check completed - providing the criminal history check has the necessary information and is equal to or higher than the check levels required for the new application.
The decision as to whether you will require a criminal history check will be made after an evaluation of your previous criminal history check (if conducted). All clients are required to pay the fee at the time of lodgement. If the Residential Services Unit determines that a criminal history check is not required, the fee will be refunded.
