What is an unapproved structure?

An unapproved structure is any building construction on your property that has not been approved by Council. Common examples are a garage-to-granny flat conversion, a large shed, or even a retaining wall higher than 1m!

Have you been ‘dobbed’ in?

If you have a structure on your property that has not been approved more than likely you will need to get it approved. It will come with a cost and involve several steps; but when you decide to sell the house, the time saved by doing it beforehand can translate into major savings down the track.

The solution usually involves 3 steps:

  1. Get retrospective drafting drawings done (an experienced Building Designer will assess your property liaising with a private certifier or town planner.)
  2. Get retrospective engineering done with a form 15
  3. Get a Private Certifier to assess your documents and submit them to Council.

**Make sure you work with an experienced pre-renovation team to prevent unnecessary stress.

At My Uno we help several unapproved structures get their approval every year, and we make the process as smooth and painless as possible.
