What does Abyss require prior to demolition?

  • A demolition permit must be obtained from your local council prior to any demolition commencing.Please be aware that this can take up to 21 days.
  • You may also need to acquire a tree removal permit depending on the size and location of the tree(s). These permits are also obtained from your local council.
  • The sewerage needs to be capped off. You will need to engage a licensed plumber to go out onsite and do this for you.
  • The electricity service and meter to the property will have to be abolished or a temporary builder's supply will have to be installed. You should contact your electricity retailer to organise this. Please note: Getting the service abolished is different to getting it disconnected.
  • Abolishing the gas service is similar to abolishing the electricity service. You will need to contact your retail gas provider for the relevant forms to complete for your area.
