A Notice to Fix is a legal document that outlines:
- work that doesn't comply with your consent or the Building Code
- a reasonable time frame to rectify the problem.
If you're issued a Notice to Fix on your final inspection, the clock will stop on your application until the work has been completed and a final re-inspection has been booked.
The time it takes to investigate the non-compliant work and produce a Notice to Fix is billed on Wellington City Council time at $163.50 per hour.
Note: If the Notice to Fix isn’t acted on within the time frame stated, we may issue an infringement notice under section 402 of the Building Act and a $1,000 fine.
