The Building Consent Process In NZ


If you have decided to build yourself a home in New Zealand, then you should know that the first thing you will need to get before gathering all the building materials is the building consent. Here are the steps you need to follow in order to speed up the building consent process in NZ:

1. Prepare And Submit Your Application

The entire process starts with you preparing and submitting your application. In order to do that, you will need to find an architect that will design the entire plan of your future house, and then you need to get what is known as PIM, or Project Information Memorandum, which will make the entire process go smoothly and can also help you save some money in the long run. Once you do so, you can easily submit your application for the building consent online – it only takes a few minutes and you can do it from the privacy of your home.

2.  Pay Attention To The Statutory Clock

After you have submitted your application, you will need to wait for approximately 20 working days for it to be reviewed and for your building consent to be issued. During this time, your application will be thoroughly analysed, just to make sure that it is fully compliant with the current building code.

3.  Granting And Issuing Your Building Consent

After 20 working days you will be granted the building consent – provided that the application meets all the requirements, and that you have paid all the adjacent fees. It is very important to go through the full documentation that comes with the consent, just to make sure that you do not need any further authorisations (such as the resource consent) before you start building your home.

The documentation consists of several important files, from the building consent form (the most important one) to the advice notes, scheduled inspections, the PIM, the development contribution notice, and such. The building consent is valid for precisely 12 months, from the day it was issued, which means that you must start building your home within that specific time frame, otherwise you will need to apply for a new building consent.

4.  Get The Code Compliance Certificate

The final step of the building consent process is getting your code compliance certificate, which confirms that your home fully complies with the issued building consent. The code compliance certificate is issued only after all the inspections have been completed and, once again, it can take up to 20 working days for it to be issued. If for any reason, your code compliance certificate is denied, then you can submit yet another application, but only after you have resolved any and all the non-compliances.

To conclude, these are the steps you need to follow in order to get your building consent and to start building your home, knowing that the building process will be legal and hassle-free. Once you have received the consent, you can start looking for skilled and professional builders in Wellington, such as www.sandssorensonbuilders.co.nz.
