Bankruptcy and Incomplete Work

Residential and Commercial Construction Complaint Form

Contractor bankrupt or liquidated

Under QBCC Home Warranty Insurance you may be able to get help if your contractor goes bankrupt, is placed under administration or enters liquidation while finishing your work. Complete a Residential and Commercial Construction Work Complaint Form and lodge with all of the required documents.

For more information see the Terminating a Contract Due to Non-Completion fact sheet.

Important: Claims are subject to your insurance policy conditions. Check the insurance policy conditions booklet you received when you entered the contract.

Contractor’s licence suspended

Check the Online Licence Search to ensure your contractor’s licence is active. A contractor cannot do building work if their licence is suspended and may only restart when the licence is reinstated.

Contact QBCC if you think your contractor is working without a licence.

Other circumstances (e.g. death, injury)

If your contractor cannot complete the contract for another reason (such as death or injury), you should seek legal advice to confirm whether you should/can terminate your contract. If a contract is legally terminated QBCC can still investigate any alleged defects and incomplete items.

Complete a Residential and Commercial Construction Work Complaint Form and lodge with all of the required documents.
