Domestic Building Warranty Insurance Claims

In Victoria, consumers are protected by Domestic Building Insurance, or DBI for short. All domestic builders are required to carry this type of insurance for works greater than a certain value ($16,000 at time of writing).

Domestic building insurance can cover large sums of money to cover both structural and non structural defects caused by faulty materials or poor building methods.

This type of building insurance applies if a builder dies, disappears or becomes insolvent. There are other instances where it can apply, just ask us if you want to find out more.

Some items that can be covered by your DBI include incomplete works, structural building defects, non-structural building defects and other costs involved in repairs or completion of work.
