What is QBCC Home Warranty Insurance?

Most residential building work done in Queensland valued over $3,300 (including labour and materials) must have home warranty insurance.

As part of the building process, we (the builder) pay a premium to insure the construction of your home. The amount is included as part of your contract, and is paid before work begins.

It may protect you where:

  • a licensed builder does not complete the contracted residential construction work and you have terminated the contract
  • the contractor fails to rectify defective work
  • the building suffers from subsidence or settlement. (Information sourced from QBCC website).
