About Our Law Firm
What is the Home Building Act?
The Home Building Act 1989 stands as a pivotal piece of legislation governing residential construction and specific specialist tasks across New South Wales (NSW), Australia. This Act meticulously defines the fundamental statutory rights for homeowners, builders, and contractors, extending across Penrith and its neighbouring suburbs like Cambridge Park, Claremont Meadows, Colyton, Cranebrook, and Emu Plains. It’s instrumental in ensuring homeowners enlist licensed, adept builders and contractors for competent, safe construction endeavours. Furthermore, the Act mandates the inclusion of statutory warranties, insurance, and crucial details in home building contracts, fortifying homeowner protections.
