What Is Owner Building in Tasmania.

In Tasmania an Owner Builder is a Natural person (not a company, partnership or trust) who is registered as an 'owner builder' by the Director of Building Control, allowing them to undertake a building project on their own land. This building project requiring a building permit as the value of the work is $5,000 or more.

Under the Building Act 2000, there are only two ways for a landowner to engage in a building project which requires a building permit and the work is valued $5,000 or more.

The landowner must either contract with an accredited builder to perform the work or, the landowner must become an Owner Builder to manage or carry out the building work themselves. Owner builders are limited to two building projects in 10 years. Subsequent work to the same project does not require re-registration.

Does an Owner Builder need to complete an Owner Builder Course?

Yes, why?

In taking on this project, the owner builder has the same responsibilities as an accredited builder. For this reason, as of 1st September 2013, all owners listed on the title must apply for registration however, only one must undertake the approved training course for 'Owner Builders'. All owners listed on the title must hold an OH&S 'White Card'.

Application to be registered as an Owner Builder must be through a building surveyor. The property owner presents to the building surveyor their plans, specifications and the title details along with evidence that they have passed an Owner Builder Course and obtained a 'White Card'. The Director of Building Control will check eligibility and issue a registration number to go on the Building Surveyor's Certificate of Likely Compliance and the Building Permit application.

The property owner then completes an Application for a Building Permit, (other necessary permits may also be required), attaches the Certificate of Likely Compliance issued by the Building Surveyor, Plans and Specifications and then provides this to the local council. The Permit Authority in the local council issues the relevant permits as required.
