What is the Home Building Act?
The Home Building Act 1989 stands as a pivotal piece of legislation at New South Wales (NSW), Australia, governing the residential building sector and specific specialist tasks. This NSW-wide law delineates the fundamental statutory rights for homeowners, builders, and contractors, promoting the engagement of licensed professionals who possess the requisite qualifications to execute construction projects with adeptness and safety. Furthermore, the Act mandates the inclusion of statutory warranties, insurance, and crucial details in home building contracts, fortifying the protections afforded to homeowners’ rights.
