The value of the building works will determine whether you require the following:
- A Licensed registered builder undertaking work over $3300.00 in contract value, must provide QBCC insurance (swimming pools do not require QBCC insurance). The Certificate of Insurance issued to the builder for your building work is a document that forms part of the building permit documents issued by the Certifier.
An Owner Builder undertaking building work over $11,000.00 in must hold a current Owner Builder Permit. For further information, go to Queensland Building & Construction Commission (QBCC)
When does Portable Long Service Leave Levy (Q-Leave) Apply?
Q-Leave applies when building and construction work that is to be carried out and the construction cost is $150,000.00 or more.
Who Supervises your Building Works?
The building work is the shared responsibility of the builder; contractor and the owner to ensure that the building work is carried out to an acceptable standard ready for the inspections required as detailed in the building permit documents.
