The Consumer Building Guide is an easy-to-read document that must be given by the contractor to the home owner before the owner signs any domestic building contract priced at $20,000 or more. Any delay in giving the guide to the owner extends the cooling-off period, during which the owner may withdraw from the contract.
It is important to be aware that only the QBCC Consumer Building Guide, without amendment, is acceptable under the legislation.
The guide replaces the previously used ‘Contract Information Statement.’
