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.
