Building Permit – Uncertified: BA2

A Building Permit - Uncertified: BA2 application is for residential dwellings and incidental structures only. Once the application is lodged there is a legislated processing time of 25 business days, but there is no need to engage the additional services of a building surveyor. 

As part of the uncertified building approval process, a building surveyor, employed by the City of Perth, will conduct the technical assessment and issue a Certificate of Design Compliance and the building permit. For commercial buildings a registered building surveyor needs to be engaged by the applicant to certify compliance to the building standards by issuing a certificate of design compliance.
