Use a Licensed Building Practitioner
If you are thinking of building or renovating, you need to check if the work is classed as ‘Restricted Building Work’ (RBW). If it is, you will require a licensed building practitioner – or LBP – to do it.
Because this work is so important, it is only allowed to be carried out by a Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP). LBPs are assessed before obtaining a license, and they have to maintain their skills to keep their licence.
Building a new home is one of the biggest commitments you will ever make – so it pays to get it right the first time.
