This is an estimate of fees for lodging a building consent application only. If your estimate does not cover all fees for the work we have done, before issuing the consent we will invoice you for any outstanding fees.
There may be other factors that may affect this estimate. These include:
- the category and complexity of work you’ve used for your estimate
- the accuracy of your assessment of the project value
- whether you've supplied all the information we need with your application
- any difference in actual inspection hours compared with the original estimate.
We usually need to do more inspections than those estimated. If this happens, we will charge for the extra inspections at the hourly rate in place when we carried out them.
The charge will also include the in-office work associated with the inspections. You will need to pay for any extra inspection fees before we issue the code compliance certificate.
If you pay more in inspection fees than incurred, we will refund these at the code compliance certificate stage.
