Do you own a commercial office building in Latrobe City?

Posted on 5 June 2017

Type: Announcement

 

Changes to the Australian Government’s Commercial Building Disclosure Program will be made on 1 July 2017 and may affect you.

What is the change?

The mandatory disclosure threshold on commercial office buildings will be lowered from 2000 square metres and above to 1000 square metres and above.

How might this affect me?

The effect of this change is that most owners and lessors of smaller commercial office buildings will need to disclose the building’s energy efficiency when they sell or lease their property after this date. An information sheet is attached for your reference.

What does this mean?

Disclosure affected buildings or tenancies of 1000m2 or more that are offered for sale or lease will require a Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) that includes a National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) and a Tenancy Lighting Assessment (TLA) for the relevant areas of the building.
