Pay your building fine

E utu i ō whaina hanga whare

When you should pay your building fine

You must pay the amount on the notice within 28 days of the notice date, unless you write to us to dispute the fine.

You should know

We issue building fines for offences listed in the Schedule 1 Infringement offences and fees.

If you do not pay your fine on time, we will send you a reminder notice. This will give you a further 28 days to pay the fine.

If you do not respond we will lodge a copy of the infringement notice electronically with the district court and pay the filing fee.

The court decides what action to take and collects the filing fee from the offender and pays us.

How to pay your building fine


​If you have received the fine within the last 72 hours, it may not be ready for online payment.

If you experience any other problem, contact us with:

  • the infringement notice number
  • the payment amount
  • what stage of the payment process the problem occurred
  • the error message you received.

You will need:

  • your credit card details
  • your infringement notice number.

At the end of the process you will get a reference number which you should keep for future reference.
