Building property inspection report

A building property inspection report provides details of all building approval records and approval status of as constructed buildings and structures after an inspection of the property, including plumbing and drainage details.

If a swimming pool is existing on the property the report will include the approval and compliance details. This inspection will not act as a swimming pool safety inspection or a swimming pool safety certificate for the pool. A swimming pool safety inspector must be engaged for this. To help pool owners find inspectors, the state government has a Public Inspector Directory of licensed pool safety inspectors. All inspectors will hold a licence indicating they are properly accredited to carry out inspections. Council encourages pool owners to request to see the licence of the inspector.

This service is available to current property owners and prospective vendors at any time.

Any other interested party may use this service only with the written consent of the current property owner.

To find out details of the prescribed service charge and/or to make application for a building property inspection, please complete the appropriate property information search application form.
