How long do I have to complete the building works once work has commenced on site?

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Once work has commenced, you have an unlimited time limit to complete the work. However, it is strongly recommended that you complete building work as soon as possible to prevent the deterioration of exposed materials (i.e. insulation, untreated timber, etc) and save unnecessary delays should the need arise to sell your property.
