Under the Building Act 1984, we are responsible for dealing with any report of a building or other structure, in a potentially dangerous condition. We will carry out a survey to find out whether there is a danger to people in the area.
Once a report is received, a surveyor will visit the site to assess the danger and any risks. If needed, under Section 78 of the Act, immediate action can be taken to remove the danger, for example, the structure can be demolished or fenced off if required.
If the structure is found to be in poor condition but is not immediately dangerous, we can advise the owner, or serve notice under Section 77, by applying to the Magistrate's Court to have the owner undertake repairs within a reasonable time.
