Unauthorised Works

Do you have an unauthorised work or plan on conducting an illegal structure? You could face litigation and hefty costs for not having a building permit and your building may be at risk of collapsing which can inflict serious injury on occupants and even cause fatalities.

Don’t worry, we can help.

What are Unauthorised Works?

An unauthorised structure is a building or property that has been constructed illegally without legitimate approval and building permit from the local council. Often, council and authorities become aware of these illegal works through community complaints or Private Certifying Authorities (PCA).  

Common unauthorised structures include:

  • Granny flats
  • Sheds/garages
  • Pools and spas
  • Renovations and alterations

To avoid unwanted community disputes, litigations, and unnecessary expenses, it is important and recommended that you also obtain a Building Information Certificate from Structural Engineers like us!
