Owner-builder public register

The VBA maintains a public register of all certificates of consent issued from 1 September 2016. This information allows potential purchasers to find out whether a property had work done on it as an owner-builder project after 1 September 2016.

The public register includes the following information:

  • the date of issue of the certificate
  • the identification number of the certificate
  • a description of the domestic building work to which the certificate relates
  • the address of the land on which the domestic building work will be carried out.
