Our tip

Compare the latest floor plan in the property file with the current layout of the home, to make sure all the building work is legal and has a Code Compliance Certificate.
 
Properties built before the 1992 Building Act, under a building permit, did not need a final inspection or a Code Compliance Certificate. Get a private pre-purchase building inspection if you are concerned about the condition of a house you want to buy.
