Enforcement notices

An enforcement notice may be issued for illegal building work or structures, non-compliant pool fencing or building work that is considered a danger to persons or risk to public health.

If a person is given an enforcement notice, they may appeal to the Building and Development Tribunals within 20 business days after the day the notice is given to the person or within five days if the notice is given in relation to a dangerous building or structure.

Decision notices

A building certifier may impose conditions on an application that the applicant may consider to be unreasonable or refuse an application under instruction to do so by a referral agency.

If an applicant seeking building and development approval is dissatisfied with a building certifier’s assessment or inspection design, they may appeal to the tribunals within 20 business days after the day the notice is issued.

Information notices

If a person receives, or is entitled to receive, an information notice under the Building Act 1975 or the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2002 and believes the notice is incorrect or unreasonable in content, they may appeal to the tribunals against the content of the notice.
