Licence and Warranty

When choosing a landscaping contractor you are making an important decision about a significant investment in your home. We understand you need to have peace of mind when your home is ‘in someone else’s hands’.

Rest assured that our professional team has the expertise to design and create your desired outdoor living space, and we will take good care of your property, while maintaining honesty, integrity and fairness in all we do. Our work is compliant with local government development regulations and The Building Code of Australia. If required, we can help you with Council Development Applications, Home Warranty Insurance, and Structural Engineering specifications.

For further peace of mind, Nature Coast Landscapes is a fully registered and insured business, with all the necessary insurance cover to protect you and your home. We are also fully licensed by NSW Department of Fair Trading to carry out structural landscaping works (Contractor Licence No: 25731C). Only a contractor who is properly trained and has the relevant experience to do the work may be licensed with NSW Fair Trading. This guarantees you 6 years’ warranty on structural defects.

Did you know? The law specifies that any Contractors who carry out residential building work (including structural landscaping) must hold a current and appropriate licence with NSW Fair Trading, where the total cost of labour and materials is valued over $1,000. Any person who carries out residential building work over $1,000 in labour and materials content without an appropriate licence is breaking the law and could be prosecuted.

Home Warranty Insurance

Nature Coast Landscapes is fully approved to provide Home Warranty Insurance and will take care of any arrangements if your project requires it.

The home warranty insurance scheme is part of a consumer protection scheme for homeowners in NSW. From 1 February 2012, home warranty insurance is required to be obtained for construction (including structural landscaping) where the contract price is over $20,000 or, if the contract price is not known, the reasonable market cost of the labour and materials involved is over $20,000.
