Wodonga Building Services can assist you and offer advice regarding building permits.
The applicant does not need to own the property¬†where the works will take place. The applicant¬†is the person applying for the building permit on behalf of the owner and is responsible for the settlement of all applicable fees incurred.
Permit fees are determined by the cost of the works and type of construction. A quote is available upon request and is valid for 60 days from the application date.
Wodonga Building Services reserves the right to review fees and make necessary adjustments during the assessment of the building application.
Fees are due upon lodgement of the application.
