Recent earthquakes and natural hazards have increased interest and focus on building safety, which has led to more unconsented works and dangerous buildings being found within our communities. 

How should you deal with the situation?

What do you tell the public when one of your officers has served a building notice?

The Building Act requires TAs to take action in their community to ensure buildings are safe and sanitary. This can be a testing area of law as some of the actions require time and money on both sides. This session will go through the back end of the process and present case studies from Waikato District Council  of successful uses of notices to fix, infringements and prosecutions.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  • detail what you need to have in place before you start;

  • prepare a verbal and written brief.
