Owner-builder self-assessment tool

You must have an owner-builder permit if you want to build or supervise work on your own private residential premise. These roles include, but are not limited to, constructions, alterations, repairs and additions to a dwelling.

This permit applies to labour and work that requires development consent and has a market value greater than $10,000 (inclusive of GST).

Our owner-builder self assessment tool takes you through a series of short questions that will determine:

  • whether the building work you are undertaking requires an owner-builder permit,
  • if you are eligible for an owner-builder permit, and
  • which owner-builder permit application form you should use.

It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
