Queensland Home Warranty Scheme review

Established in 1977, the Queensland Home Warranty Scheme acts as a ‘safety net’ for consumers undertaking new builds and renovations. The Scheme covers the home owner for loss if something goes wrong during the building process.

Visit the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) website for more information about the Scheme.

About the review

As part of the Queensland Building Plan 2017 and Queensland Building Plan Update 2021, the Queensland Government committed to strengthening the Scheme and promoting certainty, equity, fairness and transparency in its operation.

Public consultation occurred throughout 2021 and 2022 via an online survey, discussion paper and information sessions. A Ministerial Construction Council Subcommittee was established to consider the results and provided 2 reports to the Queensland Government with findings and recommendations. We are now considering these recommendations.
