Victorian Building Authority reports that a man was fined a total of $800 by the Dandenong Magistrates’ Court for providing false information to a building surveyor on a building project.

The man from Cranbourne North received a building permit for the building work on the basis of a fraudulent report and consent given to the building surveyor. Having pled guilty to the charge laid by the Victorian Building Authority, he was fined $800 and was also ordered to pay $113 in costs.

The VBA’s Compliance and Performance Director, Murray Smith said the authority will continue to prosecute people for acts of non-compliance with the Building Act.
