At some point in our lives, most of us have had the chance to experience the renovation world.Â Before you renovate or extend, careful planning will assist you inÂ managingÂ the project well and minimise disruptions.Â Before you start ensure you know what regulations and procedures are in place to ensure your building work is completed successfully.Â
There are also many other things to consider such as whoÂ you should use to manage and complete your building work and what their obligations are to fulfil the job.
If you decide to be an owner-builder, you will need to take responsibility for insurance, occupational health and safety and other compliance matters just like a builder, so understanding your rights and responsibilities is paramount.

Subject to completing an application form and paying a nominated fee, residentÂ owners can request a copy of house plans from Council's Customer Service.Â
