Retrospective Approvals

Inspections designed to assist in retrospective approvals of unauthorised building works or unapproved structures.


Many homes have had additions and/or structures built without approval. e.g., patios, sheds, and carports to mention a few.

A retrospective approval is having the necessary approvals granted “retrospectively” or after they have been built.

This inspection is carried out by a Registered Builder, who understands the system and is experienced in having approvals granted fast.

This service is completed in two stages.

1) Home Integrity will carry out a full site investigation for structural adequacy and compliance with planning and building codes.

At the completion of this stage, you will receive a report highlighting potential non-compliant and remedial works (to be completed by others), and an itemised quote detailing council/shire fees and any consultants required to complete application.

2) Should you wish to proceed further with an application, Home Integrity will project manage the process, liaising with the local council/shire and engaging consultants as required.

Home Integrity did what their name suggests - they respected and responded to the integrity of the home we are looking at and supplied us with the info that we needed to make an informed decision.
Tina Waitland
We have used Home Integrity 3 times on our new build. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and have recommended them to others. They are very thorough and picked up things that we wouldn't have thought of. An absolute God send.

Hi there, 

We see you have added an Electrical, Plumbing and Gas inspection (EPG) with a Pre-Settlement inspection. 

Please note these are very similar inspections, just performed at different times. The EPG occurs during your pre-purchase inspection, while the Pre-Settlement occurs 5-7 days before settlement. 

If you require both please proceed to check out. Alternatively, remove one and continue.

If you would like further information, please call our office before proceeding to check out on (08) 6184 5624
