What is a third party (safe and sanitary) report?
A third party (safe and sanitary) report is an independent report from a third party. The report verifies the condition of a building or building work carried out before 1 July 1992. The work may have been done with or without a building permit - at that time, there was no building consent process as we know it today.
For information about how we deal with unauthorised building work read:
