form 16 certification

Form 16 Certification

The Form 16 is a statutory document that has specific functions under the laws of the Building Act and Building Regulations, and persons who issue them have certain function and duties.

What is involved in Form 16 Certification?

We will evaluate your property prior to quoting to ensure that the building set out isn’t all your need.  Most approved building applications show the proposed buildings as being set back from the Lot boundaries. Therefore, to set out these proposed buildings, an identification survey is generally required, particularly in older areas, to establish the exact location of the boundary so that the proposed building can be set out in the correct location.

Provided the boundary has been surveyed and the building set out correctly, a cadastral surveyor can sign a form 16 certifying that the building has been set out in accordance with the approved plans.

Why it is important to have Form 16 Certification?

A building certifier requires a Form 16 certificate from a cadastral surveyor certifying that a building has been constructed according to the approved plans.
