Since the introduction of new home grant schemes and the Australian government’s efforts to stimulate the construction sector, more developers and owners have been encouraged to build new homes. The most recent changes to building laws in NSW commenced in January 2015 through the Home Building Act (“HBA”) which hopes to modernise industry practices, reduce red tape and support consumer confident and building activity across NSW. This presentation discusses 6 essential considerations to take note of when building a home in NSW.
