Owner Builders

Within the building permit process an owner builder is an owner of a property that takes on the responsibilities of the builder. To be an owner builder you need to meet a certain criteria and understand both your obligations and restrictions.

It is a requirement under the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991 that if you perform or coordinate domestic building work on your property for a single project of a value of $11,000 or more you must hold an owner builder permit.
