Building Warrant of Fitness

Building owners are responsible for keeping their buildings SAFE and HEALTHY. This means keeping the life safety features and essential systems in good working order.

The maintenance procedures for these systems are listed in a Compliance Schedule. Once a year the owner goes on record to state that those procedures have been followed.

To assist building owners, an Application for Amended Compliance Schedule Form has been included in the Related Documents area below.  Your IQP's will be able to assist you to complete this application form.

An Independent Qualified Person (IQP)

A person (or firm) registered by the Council as qualified to inspect certain Compliance Schedule items and ensure that the necessary maintenance occurs. Independent means that the person has no financial interest in the building.

Download the list of Independent Qualified Persons in Hawke's Bay or if you want to be included in this register download the application form from Hastings District Council's website.

Further Information

Available from the Council in the first instance and also the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment. The Ministry's website and newsletter are a source of information on various matters of interest to building owners. The newsletter and leaflets are available free of charge on request.
