RENOVATION, EXTENSION AND REPAIR CONTRACTS

 

If you’re carrying out a renovation, extension, improvement or repair of a home (including a house, townhouse, duplex or unit), or associated work (e.g landscaping, pool building etc), we recommend using one the following contracts:

  • QBCC Level 1 Renovation, Extension and Repair Contract – if the contract price is $3,301 to $19,999
  • QBCC Level 2 Renovation, Extension and Repair Contract – if the contract price is $20,000 or more

Contractors must give homeowners a copy of the signed and dated contract, including any plans and specifications, within 5 business days of entering the contract.  In addition, for all Level 2 contracts,  the contractor must give the homeowner a copy of the QBCC Consumer Building Guide before the homeowner signs the contract.

Before you sign a contract

Read our helpful guide Domestic Building Contracts – General information for owners and contractors (PDF). It contains general information about domestic building contracts and the relevant Queensland legislation.

Warning

As a consequence of the Treasury Laws Amendment (2017 Enterprise Incentives No. 2) Act 2017 (Cth) (“the Act”) which comes into effect as of 1 July, 2018, QBCC has amended all of its domestic building contracts, being the New Home Construction Contract‘ the Level 1 & Level 2 Renovation, Extension & Repair Contracts and the Natural Disaster Repairs Contract to better address a party’s right to terminate the contract for reasons related to the insolvency of the other party to the contract.

As the Act applies to all contracts entered after 1 July, 2018 QBCC is concerned to ensure any person entering a contract after that date uses the updated version of the Contract, to avoid certain existing clauses being deemed to be unenforceable by the Act. If you currently have a copy of the current version of the above QBCC contracts and will not enter the relevant contract prior to 1 July, 2018, please discard the current contract and download an updated version listed above.

Consumers are reminded that the termination of any contract is a significant step which should not be taken without prior legal advice from an experienced lawyer.
