Owner building

Overview

If you're considering doing a building project on your own, it helps to know the rules and regulations before you start. Depending on the value of the work, one of the first things you may need is an owner builder permit. We can help you through this process, starting from where you can go to do a short course, to the contracts you should use during your build. 

Once you have your permit, read about your responsibilities, and be aware of what you can and can't do, and some of the disadvantages of going it alone.

We understand that circumstances change sometimes, so if you already have a permit but need to make some adjustments, follow our easy guidelines.

If you've already gone ahead and built before getting a permit, we can give you some options and guidance on how to get your paperwork in order.
