Queensland Home Warranty Scheme Review | Queensland Building and Construction Commission
QBCC news

Given a home is one of the largest investments Queenslanders will make, it is important that the Scheme is structured to provide the best possible outcomes for consumers and industry.

In 2016, the Queensland Government made amendments to expand the Scheme’s coverage, increase cover limits and include the Scheme’s terms and conditions in regulation.

The next phase of the review will be led by a subcommittee of the Ministerial Construction Council (MCC), which is the Government’s peak building and construction industry advisory body. This review is being delivered in four stages.
