Are your domestic building contracts up to scratch?
Wednesday, 22 April 2015
The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) is urging domestic builders to be aware of the requirements for domestic building contracts after five registered building practitioners were fined a total of $18,000 in just three months for not complying with their contract obligations.
The five practitioners were reprimanded and fined for breaches of the Domestic Building Contracts Act 1995 (DBCA) and the VBA says it is vital the Act is understood and adhered to.
VBA Director of Compliance and Performance Murray Smith said registered building practitioners need to ensure they understand the requirements before issuing a contract for domestic building work.
