Building Surveyors and Owner Builders
The owner must engage a Building Surveyor and:
- Present plans and specifications for the proposed works
- Make application for an Owner Builder Permit in consultation with your Building Surveyor and lodge the application at a Service Tasmania shop
- Have the application for an Owner Builder Permit approved by the Administrator of Occupational Licensing, and
- Receive a Certificate of Likely Compliance from the Building Surveyor
The owner is then required to apply for a building permit.
The owner must provide the Certificate of Likely Compliance, copies of the plans, specifications and title documents to the local council (Permit Authority) with the application.
