Are You Ready To Begin Planning Your Bathroom Renovation?

What licensing or permit is needed for a bathroom renovation?

There are a lot of people offering bathroom renovation services in Sydney, we implore all homeowners to carefully consider the depth of experience and the appropriate licensing and insurance of their future bathroom renovator. Don’t simply go and pick the cheapest quote of a sole trader tradie working from their van. Some tradies who help you with your bathroom renovations may not require a trade licence in some states, but all absolutely should be qualified and insured. 

What qualifications to check before selecting a bathroom renovator?

For bathroom renovations, your licensed builder will need at least one qualification from each of these two Groups:

Group A qualifications include an existing NSW trade licence in carpentry, joinery, plumbing or Wall & Floor Tiling or Certificate III level training in the trade or trades they carry out.

Group B qualifications include completion of a variety of “units of competency” and/or satisfactory completion of related TAFE certificate courses such as tiling.

For example, if you want to replace your bathtub and a plumber replaces it and does some tiling work as well, they will need a valid plumber’s licence and a Certificate III in tiling.

For a major bathroom renovation, you will probably need to hire a licensed Building Contractor. In NSW, only licensed contractors are authorised to enter into contracts, hire subcontractors and supervise workers on the job

What is owner-builder work?

Owner-builder work is any work, including supervision and coordination of the construction, alterations, repairs or additions to a property: where the reasonable market cost (including labour and materials) exceeds $10,000, and which relates to a single dwelling-house, dual occupancy* or a secondary dwelling that: requires development consent under Part 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, or is a complying development within the meaning of that Act.

*Note: an owner-builder permit will only be issued regarding a dual occupancy in cases of special circumstances. An owner-builder permit is for people who have the skill or capacity to build their own house or supervise construction work. While an owner-builder permit is not a builder’s licence, as an owner-builder, you are responsible for the building work as a fully licensed builder would be.

What licences to ask for before selecting a bathroom renovator?

Builders and tradespeople in NSW need to be licensed to do building work where the total cost of labour and materials is more than $5,000. Some licensed contractors with only a Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry renovation licence may be limited to jobs under $20,000 in value.

For a full bathroom renovation it is likely that you will need to engage someone with a Builders licence over a Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry renovation licence. You will be able to tell the difference in the licence numbers. A NSW Fair Trading Builders licence will end in a C. Oxford Bathrooms has a current NSW Fair Trading Builders Licence, number 128775C.

A Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry renovation licence will start with an R. Take some extra consideration and ask some extra questions about that businesses’ suitability for your bathroom renovation project if you see the R in the licence number. Certain trades, including plumbing, draining and gas fitting  require a specialist contractor licence.

In New South Wales, if your bathroom renovations exceed $1,000 labour and materials in value, the individual, partnership or company you hire will need to hold a current Builder’s Licence issued by NSW Fair Trading. To learn more about what is considered residential building work, what is a dwelling, and what is excluded from the definition of residential building work, see schedule 1 of the Home Building Act 1989.
