  • workmanship, quality control, or other building-related aspects not specifically covered by the NCC;
  • administrative documents such as contracts, permits and compliance inspection reports;
  • regulatory offences and penalties and appeal processes;
  • licencing and auditing of building and plumbing practitioners; and
  • planning issues, such as land use, zoning and plot ratios.
