What is the Home Building Act?
The Home Building Act 1989 stands as pivotal legislation governing residential construction and specific specialist tasks across New South Wales, including areas like Chatswood, Roseville, and Lane Cove. This Act establishes the fundamental statutory rights for homeowners, builders, and contractors, promoting the engagement of licensed, adept professionals for secure, proficient construction work.
