Under the Act, “residential building work” includes the construction, alteration or improvement to a residential building (as defined below) and associated building work, but not paving, fencing, retaining walls and swimming pools, or demolition of a whole building, among other things.

The definition of “residential building work” in the Act is not particularly clear and the Act seeks to clarify the meaning by analysing a number of examples of building types and situations. If there is any doubt about whether the project is a residential building, the builder or the owner should get legal advice about whether the Act applies to the project.

The MW H ACT also provides a mechanism for the owner to pay the contractor a deposit. The deposit amount is a pre-payment of the contract price. See the User Guide for more information on the deposit amount payable and how the mechanism for payment works under the ABIC 2018 contracts.

Under the RBWC Act, residential building is generally constructing, altering, underpinning or demolishing a dwelling. If the project is the owner's home or multi-unit housing, with no more than 3 separate dwellings one above the other, the project involves residential building work.

However, a building separated into different places of residence for rental, or a building designed to house more than 12 people not of the same family is not a residential building under the legislation. If the project is a hotel, boarding house and the like, usually providing temporary accommodation, the builder or the owner should get legal advice about whether the legislation applies to the project.

Included in this contract pack is 3 copies of the contract, an Information Statement for the Owner and a copy of the mandatory Residential Building Consumer Guide.

Under the Home Building Contracts Act 1991 (HBCA), projects for home building work with a contract price between $7,500 and $500,000, must use a compliant form of contract, such as the SW 2018 H WA.

If there is any doubt about whether the project is home building, the builder or the owner should get legal advice about whether the Act applies to the project.

Included in this contract pack is 3 copies of the contract, an Information Statement for the Owner (the mandatory Notice for the Home Owner is included in the contract).

The SW H WA also provides a mechanism for the owner to pay the contractor a deposit.

See the User Guide for more information on the deposit limits and how the mechanism for payment works under the ABIC 2018 contracts.

Under the Act, “domestic building work” is constructing, erecting, underpinning, altering, repairing, improving, adding to or demolishing a house including the site preparation.

If the project is the owner’s home, or multi-unit housing to be sold by the owner, domestic building work is involved.

A house is generally a building intended as a residence, but there are exceptions. Hotels, boarding houses usually providing temporary accommodation are not a house’. If the project is residential but provides temporary accommodation, the builder or the owner should get legal advice about whether the Act applies to the project.

Included in this contract pack is 3 copies of the contract and an Information Statement for the Owner (the Form 1—Your Building Contract: Your Rights and Obligations is included in the contract).
