Who is an Owner Builder?

An Owner-Builder assumes the responsibilities, risks and liabilities of a builder. The level of those responsibilities, risks and liabilities depends on the extent of the building work undertaken by the owner. Genuine owner-builders will live or intend to live in their home once completed. Do not make the decision to be an owner-builder lightly. Unless you are confident that you have the knowledge to undertake a project like this, you should seriously reconsider if becoming an owner-builder is the right choice for you.
