A building information certificate must be accompanied by the appropriate prescribed fee. This fee is prescribed by the legislation and is listed in Councils fees and charges.

There is a standard (minimum) fee for a Building Information Certificate. However, additional fees apply in relation to:

  • Class 2 to Class 9 buildings (e.g. residential flat building, boarding house, aged care, commercial or industrial building).
  • Building work carried out without or not in accordance with development consent and/or construction certificate or complying development certificate, or associated provisions.
  • If it is necessary to carry out more than one inspection, or if the floor area of the overall building is greater than that stated in the application.
