QBCC Contract Requirements
Article by Michael Kleinschmidt & Sara Caddy - Straum Legal

The QBCC (Queensland and Building Construction Commission) is Queensland’s building industry regulator. Established under the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991 (QBCC Act), it provides information, advice and regulation. That includes resolving defective building work disputes, providing insurance to protect homeowners and licencing contractors.

Under the QBCC Act, all contractors performing work over $3,300 in value must hold a QBCC licence.  There are strict penalties imposed for a breach, which can include a fine and/or loss of licence where there have been persistent breaches.
