You will require this certificate at the final stage of building work for minor structural alterations that do not have the effect of changing the character or use of the building, such as carports, fences or signs.
Your building permit will indicate whether a certificate of final inspection is required. A certificate of final inspection is required for all building works that do not require an occupancy certificate.
The building surveyor responsible for the work will issue a certificate of final inspection if satisfied that the building is suitable for occupation.
Please consult with your council building department and your building surveyor for further details specific to your building work.
