A Notice to Fix (NTF) is a formal notice (Form 13) issued by the BCA advising that certain works have not been carried out in accordance with the building consent or the Building Code/Act. If an NTF is issued you must address the issues identified within the prescribed timeframe to prevent further action being taken.

Typically, an NTF will be issued for serious or ongoing breaches. If an NTF is issued, documentation identifying and explaining the process will accompany it. We would prefer to work with you to achieve compliance. We are available for a meeting to discuss the best way to resolve an NTF if you are unsure of how to go about this.

Note: As the owner, you are responsible for applying for Code Compliance Certificate. If you have any questions Council are happy to work with you to ensure you understand the process.
