BUILDING LOCATION & HEIGHT CERTIFICATION - Form 12
LOCATION & HEIGHT CERTIFICATION
A building location certificate Form 12, is a Government form that refers to a building's location, or its height or both.
It informs the building certifier that the construction has been built in accordance with the approved plans.
Certification is a usually a requirement for completing construction, particularly when homes are being raised and especially if boundary clearance relaxations have been applied for. Contour plans or Site Plans are not an acceptable substitute for these certificates.
Occasionally we receive requests for a form 12 at the completion of construction. However the appropriate time to check the construction is before the builder digs the footings. If there has been no survey at this stage the location of the proposed construction is being determined by guesswork.
We recommend that a Building Set Out Survey be undertaken to avoid mistakes and future issues.
Post construction check surveys are often more difficult than a building set out and may attract a substantially higher fee than a building set out.
