Here at AWESIM we specialise in Home Owners Warranty Inspections.
It is a requirement of the New South Wales Home Building Act 1989 that “An owner-builder must not enter into a contract for the sale of land on which owner-builder work is to be or has been done by or on behalf of the owner-builder unless a contract of insurance that complies with this Act is in force in relation to the work or proposed work.”
That means if you are a owner builder and intend or are in the process of selling your home which has had a renovation, addition or new building over the value of $20,000 and selling within 6 years of the completion of works or occupation certificate you must provide a Home Owners Warranty Inspection Report to your insurance broker, prior to them issuing a certificate of Home Owners Warranty Insurance.
