Building Regulations 51 (2)

Any time you're buying or selling a house, you need this statement to form a part of the Section 32 Sale of Land Act or for when you're preparing a building permit application. It informs if a property is:

  • liable to flooding (under Regulation 153 or 154)
  • subject to infestation by termites (under Regulation 151)
  • subject to significant snowfalls (under Regulation 152).

Whilst you still need the statement, here are a couple of things to be aware of:

  • you can explore land liable to flooding on the Manningham Planning Scheme using the Urban Floodway Zone, Land Subject to Inundation and Special Building Overlay.
  • you can find out what land, proposed structures and works are affected by Melbourne Water's waterways and/or assets. View the Melbourne Water Flood Zone Map BR154:
