How do I get my building files?
Homeowners, builders or other authorised representatives often need to access building files before they extend or renovate.
The owner of a block may apply to Access Canberra to access their building files. Alternatively, they may supply another individual (i.e. a builder) with a letter of consent to access the files.
How do I access documents from my building file?
- By visiting Access Canberra’s Customer Service Centre at Mitchell with photographic ID and a letter of consent if you are not the owner and our staff will assist you with your enquiries.
- By filling out the Building File Search Form () and sending it to email@example.com.
What does a building file search cost?
An application fee applies for all building file searches.
Copies of plans/documents vary in price depending on the size of the document.
