In Victoria the Building Act (1993) requires that a building permit must be obtained prior to commencement of work. The permit ensures that the building practitioner is registered and has appropriate insurance in place. The key stages of the project is independently inspected and finally assessed for occupancy. A Building Permit for some minor works may not offer the protection and benefits of employing a building surveyor. The work may be exempt from obtaining a building permit. If in doubt please consult your local council building surveyor.
