It has come to my attention by a builder that I use that rules for renovations in Qld have changed in regards to the cost of the renovations.
He has informed me that I can not do renovations in excess of $11,000, without employing a builder as the project manager. Is this true?
If this is the case why would anyone want to buy and renovate in Qld? Hell a good bathroom reno may cost $10,000.
He also said this applied to owner occupiers as well?
Do any of you know of this or is he geeing me up?
Thanks in advanceDave CParticipant@sharky83Join Date: 2016Post Count: 2
Hi there fish, It’s not quite that bad.
If you want to renovate you can however you need to get an owner builder’s permit if the works would cost more than $11k. This is to crack down on dodgy renovations really.
There is nothing that prevents you from doing the work, they just want to make sure you know what you are doing before you go taking on such a big job. That is why you have to do a 3 day course and pay for a permit.
Hope that helps!
