Commercial and Domestic construction building disputes must first proceed through a resolution process with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC).
You should lodge your complaint relating to defective work or delay directly with the QBCC.
A QCAT application can be made if that process proves unsuccessful once you have received a letter from QBCC advising of the outcome.
In the case of domestic construction, there is no upper limit to the value of a dispute that QCAT will determine.
In commercial construction, however, the upper limit to the value of the dispute is $50,000.
Our fixed fee package for written advice; claim/defense preparation and accompanying submissions is $3,000 plus GST. Terms apply. QCAT filing fee (claims only) is an additional $380.
