Homefirst Guarantee - Projects over $30,000

If you’re building a new home you need to know you’re doing so with people you can trust and whose reputation and workmanship are of the highest standard.
Building a new home or making a significant alteration is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make, and if anything goes wrong it could be the most costly too. The Building Act and Consumer Guarantees Act both include protection for consumers when undertaking building work. However, if the building company you’ve chosen goes bust, or something happens to your builder, this legislative protection is of no value whatsoever. That’s why it makes sense to reduce your risk by having an independently-insured guarantee in place, just in case something does go wrong.

A Homefirst Guarantee protects your deposit and ensures that if your chosen builder can’t complete the job we’ll find someone to finish it, and cover the extra costs to do so (subject to the limits of the policy). The guarantee also covers the repair of defects for 10 years.
