With many of us undertaking renovation works on our properties, or even purchasing a home where such work has already been done, it is important for home owners to be aware that they do have some protection for domestic building works undertaken on their homes, whether or not they engaged the builder or contractor themselves and regardless of how the builder or contractor was engaged, which, as we know, can often be somewhat informal and not generally governed by a formal contract.
Section 8 of the Domestic Building Contracts Act 1995 (Vic) implies certain warranties into all domestic building contracts, namely:
Under section 9 of the Act, these implied warranties can be enforced by a lawyer of the subsequent owner of the property, even though that owner did not retain the builder or have the building works undertaken.
