We had a kitchen/laundry renovation done 3 years ago which involved making the separate kitchen & laundry into one area and expanding into what used to be a under roof rear porch of 2SQM. So we've expanded the exterior wall to take up that porch.
We were told we did not require a building permit as all of works was done under the roofline.
We own a unit on a block of 3 and after looking at our title I’ve noticed the title shows that the original exterior wall with the 2M x 2M porch notch as the boundary of the unit rather than the roofline.
My questions are did I need a building permit and if so can I get a “retrospective” building permit?
What would be the steps to get the title updated?
I'm based in Kingston VIC.
