If it appears to a local authority1 that any premises2 are in such a state as to be prejudicial to health3 or a nuisance4 (a 'defective state') and that unreasonable delay in remedying the defective state would be occasioned by following the abatement procedure5, the local authority may employ a special expedited procedure to deal with the defective premises under the Building Act 19846.
Under this procedure, the local authority may serve on the person on whom it would have been appropriate to serve an abatement notice7
