Selling Houses Australia



  • Carried out in accordance with AS4349. 1-2007;
  • If you are planning to sell your property and at any time in the last six years and six months you have done building works on it, you must include this information in your Section 32 Statement. You then must include in your paperwork a defects inspection report which has to be no more than 6 months old.
  • The defects inspection report must be completed by a registered building practitioner for all work regardless of value, including extensions, renovations, garages and verandas.
  • You will also need to take out domestic building insurance for work over $12,000 ($16,000 from 1 July 2014) to protect the person who buys your property. If a registered building practitioner carried out the work under a major domestic building contract, it should be covered by their domestic building insurance; but you also need your own domestic building insurance to cover your work. The insurance covers non-structural defects for two years and other defects for six years. After six years, the property is no longer covered by domestic building insurance.
