Owner Builder Insurance QLD
If you are considering owner-building, you are undoubtedly aware of the benefits of taking on a new build, remodel or renovation project yourself.
You get to mark your own stamp on every aspect of the project, you get to reap all the praise on successful completion and of course, you save significantly on financial costs – builder’s costs can amount to up to 25% of overall project fees after all.
However, are you aware of the owner builder requirements QLD government operates? Any owner builder QLD wide is required to assume specific responsibilities:
- You must only carry out the works covered in the application for your building permit.
- Any contractors employed to undertake any building work on your project must be licensed.
- You cannot perform plumbing, draining, gas-fitting or pest control works yourself unless you have an occupational licence within these specific trades.
- You need to have a licence to perform fire protection works higher than $1,100 in value.
- You must display an owner builder sign on your property while works are on-going.
- You must oversee quality control and safety standards with workmanship on site.
- You need to manage the resolution of any defective works.
- You must ensure you have appropriate insurance protection in place.
That last requirement we can help you with. At Qtrust, we have a long-standing reputation as the leading provider of owner builders insurance QLD.
We ensure financial protection for you and your family against legal claims arising from your self-build project. Owner builder projects are susceptible to the same risks as any building project.
