Are you thinking of having painting work done to your home, garage or shed?
We’d like to remind home and property owners that if the value of your painting work is over $3,300 (including labour, materials and GST) an insurance premium must be paid under the Queensland Home Warranty Scheme.
The premium amount should be included in the price of your painting work and paid to the QBCC by your QBCC licensed contractor.
In December, we launched a property maintenance awareness campaign aimed at educating home owners about their responsibilities when it comes to property maintenance.
In some instances there are specific lawful requirements for property owners to maintain their property. For example, the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2002 requires the owner of premises to take all reasonable steps to ensure all plumbing and drainage on the premises is kept in good condition and operates properly.
Summer is already here, and this is the time of year that Queenslanders love to get out on their decks with family and friends.
So if you are planning on holding a holiday celebration on the deck at your property, now is the time to get your deck checked.
Decks and balconies require regular and effective maintenance to help ensure their long-term safety. The frequency of this maintenance depends on the materials, type of finish, climate and the degree of exposure to the weather.
