Conveyancing Q&A - No code of compliance

Monday, February 29, 2016

In this week's Conveyancing Q&A, Hilary Jenkins covers what it means when there is no code of compliance.  

APIA Ask An Expert

I have signed a conditional sale and purchase agreement upon satisfaction of LIM.  The LIM report shows that there is no code of compliance for an extension.  Should I still go through with the sale?  What does it mean for me to own a property with no CCC?

APIA Ask An Expert

It is not always a deal breaker if you find building work has been carried out without building consent, or if a final CCC has not been issued. It really depends on the scope of work done, how much was inspected and what still needs to be done to achieve compliance.

Owning a property without CCC can have a number of issues including affecting your insurance coverage, the property's resale value, and your ability to obtain a mortgage, all the way through to potentially being required by Council to re-instate the property, but again that depends on exactly what building work is involved.

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
