What if I am an owner builder?

The Building Act 2016 allows genuine owner-builders who are not accredited builders to undertake building work on their own land. However the Act restricts an owner-builder's activity to no more than two class 1a buildings in ten years.

To qualify as an owner/builder it is necessary to meet specified criteria in order to obtain registration. You should contact a building surveryor for further advice.

The following link will provide you with further information regarding your restrictions and obligations.
