Certificate of Final Inspection - City of Yarra - Victoria


Your building permit will specify if you require a certificate of final inspection from your appointed building surveyor.

This certificate is generally required if an occupancy permit is not required.  Extensions and alterations to existing homes do not require an occupancy permit, as the existing building should already have an occupancy permit.
