If you are buying or selling a property over a year old in Western Australia, you may need to have what is known as a “Retrospective Approval”. This is when the property is inspected to ensure that any prior additions comply with the building code. There may be times when the original plans, permits and inspections cannot be found and for your own peace of mind, you want to make certain there is no possibility of structural failure. Compliance is a major issue for homes that are going to be bought or sold. Any unapproved structures can hold up the settlement process indefinitely until rectified.

Resicert will have one of our professionally certified inspectors come to the building and perform a two stage process:

Stage 1

  • Perform site inspection
  • Review any existing documents
  • Take detailed photos of the building/s
  • Draw sketches using accurate dimensions
  • Determine the proper documents needed for submission to the council
  • Provide written estimate for the second stage

Stage 2

  • Draft detailed drawings
  • Identify any compliance issues
  • Recommend any work needed to rectify any problems
  • Issue a “Certified Engineering Structural Report”
  • Issue “Building Compliance Certificate”
  • Prepare any documents required for submission to council

All of our reports are clear and easy to read and are available within 48 hours. You will also receive a complete verbal report before the inspector leaves.
