About Our Law Firm
What is the Home Building Act?
The Home Building Act 1989 stands as a pivotal legislative framework in New South Wales (NSW), governing residential construction and specific specialist tasks. This NSW-wide law delineates the fundamental statutory protections for homeowners, builders, and contractors, promoting the engagement of licensed professionals who uphold safety and expertise in their craft. Furthermore, the Act mandates the inclusion of statutory warranties, insurance, and crucial details in home building contracts, fortifying the rights of homeowners throughout the process.
