(9) A complaint can be made to Access Canberra if a building does not comply with its approved plans. If the building work is still underway, this would normally be corrected by the lessee/owner with an amending BA, depending on existing contractual obligations in an off the plan scenario (if applicable).

If a Certificate of Occupancy and Use is already issued and the property exchanged, amendments can be settled by consent between the new owners and the builder. Where the builder does not agree to return the building to the approved plans the builder may be compelled by the Construction Occupations Registrar to remedy the situation by reinstating works back to the most recent set of approved plans.

(10) Where the owner is not the original lessee the recourse available to them will be set out in the terms of the contract entered into by them as the purchaser.

In cases where the owner is the lessee who contracted the builder they can make a complaint to the Registrar.
