Building Information Certificates

A building information certificate is issued under division 6.7 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979.

The certificate can apply to the whole or part of a building and is valid for seven years. It is usually sought by buyers or sellers of a property to make sure that a particular building and its land can remain as they are for that period of time - without suffering regulatory action by Council. A building information certificate does not operate to prevent Council from making a development control order that is a fire safety order or a building product rectification order.
