Top tips when taking out Owner Builder Insurance

Owner Builders remember – as an Owner Builder, you’re taking on the responsibility of a builder so that means you’re taking on the responsibility of managing a safe and secure work site.

So here are our top tips when it comes to Owner Builder Insurance:

  1. Don’t dismiss insurance even if you’re doing a small project. It’s simply not worth the risk.
  2. If renovating your existing home as an owner builder, don’t assume your existing home contents insurance will cover you because it won’t.
  3. If you can, take out the maximum amount of insurance for your build especially with Public Liability. Greater peace of mind if anything does go wrong.
  4. Some owner builder insurance policies expire after one year. Be sure to check with your provider what happens after one year. Do they offer flexibility to extend? If so, for how long?
  5. Ask your Insurance provider if Worker’s Compensation is required for your job. This will depend on whether you’re contracting to a Sole Trader (one man band) or Pty Ltd contractor.
  6. Think about Volunteers Insurance to cover those friends and family who are generous enough to help you.
  7. It’s just as important to understand the exclusions of an insurance policy, as it is the inclusions.
  8. Understand the terms and conditions of a policy!

And two extra tips for good luck:

  1. Ask a tradesperson to provide their Certificate of Insurance or a Certificate of Currency (as it’s sometimes called) showing their insurance is paid and up-to-date – it’s smart!
  2. If sub-contracting to a Pty Ltd contractor, check their Workers Comp policy is up-to-date. If it’s expired and a worker is injured, it’s the worker who can claim against you.

Happy researching, planning and building 😊

    Hello and welcome to my webpage. I’m Adnan.
    I have always dreamed of being a novelist but never dreamed I’d make a career of it. In college, though, I helped a fellow student who needed help. She could not stop complimenting me . Word got around and someone asked me for to help them just a week later. This time they would pay me for my work.
    During the summer, I started doing research paper writing for students at the local college. It helped me have fun that summer and even funded some of my college tuition. Today, I still offer my writing services to students.

    Welcome Everyone
    Thanks for checking out my writing website . My name is Nannie.
    I have worked several years in this niche. My interest in writing started at a young age. I wrote poetry as a child and eventually went on to work with my school newspaper.
    This early tryst into news reporting eventually led me to academic writing. There is plenty of work for skilled writers. I specialize in dissertations , but have the skills to do all types of academic writing.
    Email me for more information about rates and a price quote. I’m looking forward to helping you.

    Hello, I’m Reema Bright.
    Welcome to my about page. I started writing in my early school years after a creative writing assignment for my English teacher. I did creative writing for several months before I thought about doing something else.
    I had always loved doing non-fiction writing because I’m passionate about learning. When you combine writing ability with a love of learning, academic writing only makes sense as a job.
    I’m passionate about aiding the students of the future in their school career. When they get too busy, I am there to help.
