You will need an Asset Protection Permit if you are undertaking works for, or in connection with, any of the following:
- Demolition, Construction
- Renovation, Alteration, Cladding
- Relocation or Removal, Restumping
- Excavation, Landscaping, Concreting
- Subdivision Road Construction
This list is not a complete list of all activities that may require an Asset Protection Permit.
If works are valued at less than $30,000, an Asset Protection Permit is not required, except for the demolition or removal of structures and any masonry structure (regardless of value).
It is the property owner’s responsibility to obtain the Asset Protection permit.
Where works involve demolition and construction of a dwelling, you may take out the permit for both activities, however in some instances depending on your contract, the builder may take out their own permit for construction.
Therefore, you would only need a permit to cover demolition and landscaping. It’s best to find this out from the beginning to avoid any unnecessary fees.
