How to order
Add a third party report to a property file
The council does not inspect or sign off building work completed before the Building Act came into effect (before 1 July 1992).
If you own a structure built before 1 July 1992, and you have concerns about its compliance, you can request a third party report from a suitably qualified building professional.
If you’ve obtained a third party report, you can submit it to the council to add to the property file, as a matter of public record.
The council does not accept any responsibility for checking or validating these reports.
There is a fee to submit a third party report – see the fee guide.
To submit a third party report, complete the third party report form (PDF 72KB) and send it to:
