Domestic building contracts
If you carry out domestic building work valued at more than $3,300 in Queensland, the Domestic Building Contracts Act requires you to have a written contract with your clients, and to give them a signed copy and a BSA-approved Contract Information Statement.
Master Builders produce a wide range of standard form contracts for domestic building, which fully comply with the requirements of the Domestic Building Contracts Act.
