Owner Builder NT

Hello Owner Builder in the Northern Territory!

Did you know that the rules are slightly different in the Northern Territory for Owner Builders compared to other states?

You're not required to complete an Owner Builder course in the NT (lucky you!).


The Building Practitioners Board (BPB) requires you to apply for an Owner Builder Certificate for work over $12,000. As part of the application process, there is an expectation that you read the Owner Builders manual they provide.

The BPB is a part of the Northern Territory Government and will be your main point of contact for you as an Owner Builder building or renovating in the NT.

Make sure you add the Customer Service number to your speed dial as they will be a great ‘go-to' for information, guidance and support throughout your build – 1300 300 630.

CLICK HERE to go direct to the NT Government BPB page.

We'd love you to take a good look around our site and also visit our non-government Courses page for help simplifying the build process!

And if you'd like to learn from other OB's, come and join our Facebook group!
