We had our hot water cylinder replaced about 7 or 8 years ago. I know for a fact that the guy who installed it got a certificate of compliance etc and the council got a copy?

 

Anyway, should this be visible on the LIM report for the property?

 

The reason I ask is that its not on the LIM we just had done but Im not sure if it should be on there or not. Its got things like the fireplace the previous owners installed. Or is the fireplace only on there because its a structural change (ie hole in the roof)?

The LIM will only have things related to building consents. If it was just a 1:1 (ish) swap of an old hot water tank, building consent woudn't have been required. I didn't even think that plumbers issued Certificates of Compliance, though I could be wrong there. It may have been the electrical side of things? They usually have a Code of Compliance, but the Council don't keep records of these which is why prospective purchasers of a property end up asking vendors for the blasted things even though the work was done ten years ago. Most building inspection reports seem to recommend asking for them.

Fireplace needed building consent / CCC.  Replacing like for like hot water cylinder does not.  Only ff it was moved to another location or otherwise changed it would have needed consent and would show in the LIM.

Keep copy of any paperwork on the work anyway, that way if you do goto sell, you can tell the agent you do have the papers on it all.

 

I hated getting LIM reports and finding things missing etc and the vendor not being able to give anything.

Good plan. I was hoping that stuff would be on the LIM.

CoC is under electrical regs, not building regs.  Outside council's jurisdiction.
