If you're wanting to supervise or do building work worth more than $10,000 on your home, and you're not contracting a licensed builder to supervise the work, you'll need an Owner-Builder Permit.
Before you apply, familiarise yourself with the information provided on Becoming an owner-builder to avoid delays in processing your application.
You can apply for an Owner-Builder Permit:
- online, if you're eligible. Check the eligibility requirements, or
- in person, at a service centre. To find out if you're eligible and to download the relevant forms, use the Owner-builder self assessment tool before going to the service centre. You can book an appointment to submit your application at your chosen service centre.
