Certification fees

Homestar ratings are carried out by Homestar Assessors who negotiate their own Assessor Fees. As with any professional service, you should get several quotes and compare suppliers before engaging a Homestar Assessor to carry out your rating.

The fee calculator covers NZGBC’s Admin and Audit Fee. We’ve developed a calculator to provide a provisional cost. The key variables are:

  • Number of dwellings in project
  • Number of typologies in project

Admin and Audit Fees include:

  • Fixed admin fee - $295
  • Admin fee per dwelling - $150 for members; $195 for non members
  • Fee per typology - $500

This would result in approximate fees per dwelling as shown in the table below (based on NZGBC member rate).
