How to Successfully Secure your Building Warrant of Fitness in Auckland

A Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF) in Auckland is a certificate issued by the local council that affirms that the building has duly complied with the necessary NZ performance standards. This includes the building’s specified systems have been inspected as well by a registered IQP/s (Independent Qualified Person) in the last 12 months.

Moreover, doing things in accordance with the compliance schedule is not easy, an Auckland property owner has to assure the council that all their specified systems have been well-maintained and inspected.

Specified systems are safety and essential systems found in any building. Most are safety mechanisms that ensure a building is safe for people to live and work in. As machines are known to breakdown from time to time, specified systems often need a compliance schedule to make sure they are functioning properly.

Can you go without a BWoF?

There is no way around this – a Building Warrant of Fitness is mandated by law. These safeguards are there to ensure public safety by making sure buildings are structurally safe and all of its specified systems are functional. You can risk losing your business license and face stiff penalties or jail time if you operate without one.
