Thinking of renovating or building? - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views
Real Estate

Your house is likely to be one of your biggest assets, so it makes sense to ensure any building or renovation work is done to an acceptable standard and stands the test of time.

The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) is offering potential home owners and renovators a free online information session with practical information on what to look out for when considering a building or renovation project.

The webinar will help you understand what building or renovating involves, how to maintain and protect your property, and what to look for before considering building, buying, renovating or selling a house.

We will show you what to look out for if you decide to hire a contractor, or if you plan to do work yourself, as well as:

  • what homeowners are responsible for when building or renovating
  • the steps you need to take if your project goes in an unwanted direction
  • information you should know about contracts
  • and details on what home warranty insurance is and when you can access it.

Ensuring you use an appropriately licensed contractor for your project is an important consideration when building or renovating. In Queensland, all work valued at $3,300 and over, along with specialist trade work (like plumbing and electrical work) of any value, must be done by an appropriately licensed contractor. We will give you useful tips on how you can choose wisely.

The session is on Monday 28 February 2022 from 6.00-6.40pm. Our host will guide you through a fact-filled presentation followed by a live question and answer session.
