As a consequence of the Treasury Laws Amendment (2017 Enterprise Incentives No. 2) Act 2017 (Cth) ("the Act") which came 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 have a copy of a QBCC or other domestic building contract dated prior to 1 July, 2018, you should discard that contract and replace it with a more recent version which reflects the changes introduced by the legislation mentioned 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.
