A Certificate of Occupancy is the formal approval document which confirms your property is techinically fit to live in.

A Final Building Inspection is undertaken by a private certifier, and is a mandantory step during the practical completion of your property to ensure the property is:

  • Safe to occupy
  • Built in accordance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and relevant Australian Standards
  • The construction adheres to the relevant state building laws

The builder will issue a Certificate of Occupancy together with the final invoice. Your lender may require this document to release the final payment.
