Fees will be calculated when you lodge the consent and will include the estimated number of inspections required for your project. The fee schedule is available on our Building Fees and Charges page and will give you an estimate of the amount payable.
The majority of applications are processed on a time basis and will require a fee deposit to be paid before your consent will be accepted for processing.
If the value of your project is over $20,000.00 your fees will include levies which we are required to collect on behalf of the Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ). Projects with a value of $20,444 and over will also be charged a levy for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
