    A good move but the devil is in the detail?

    and the detail is missing which suggests a knee jerk from some one?

    Must be up to the building code / Act is one detail.

    But who's going to check if no consent is required?

    The owner decides. S41 building act only requires that the work is :described".

    if under the floor area and it ticks all the boxes then it could be compliant but this could be the fish hook. If that container becomes a building then they will want proof of compliance?

    I see this change in legislation as the biggest development in property in decades. There are about to be 100,000 sleepouts built, not to mention the carports, garages and other structures. This is going to affect the rental market, builder rates, insurance, inspections, tribunal decisions and valuations. Yet it seems to have gone over everyone's head....

    How so?

    Along with the tiny homes on wheels determination, it does look auspicious.
