QBCC’s contract requirements are changing on 1st July

The domestic building contracts that you’re using now will be illegal if signed after 30th June due to changes in QBCC’s contract requirements. It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to modify your current contracts to meet the new requirements.

HIA’s contracts online will be updated automatically after 30th June once the changes come into force so this is a good way of ensuring that you’re using the right contract.

HIA is also offering webinars, information sessions, rebates on unused contracts and explanatory material about the changes to all members.
