Applying for a bond refund

Once you've finished your building works, you can request a final inspection together from the building surveyor. Find out about this process.

How to apply

We will need your certificate of final inspection or occupancy permit from your building surveyor, together with your request for our final asset inspection.

We'll inspect our assets and refer any damage to the permit holder. You must repair the identified damage within 30 days of receiving the notification.

If you don't repair the damage within 30 days, we'll complete the work with your bond and refund any left over money. If the works cost more than your bond amount, we'll invoice you for the difference.

If you pass the asset inspection and no damages have occurred, we will refund the bond back to you.
