Special Conditions for HIA New Homes: New South Wales

These Special Conditions have been prepared for use by the builder and the owner, as an alternative form of contract, where:

  • the bank or financier imposes on the parties a Housing Industry Association’s HIA NSW Residential Building Contract for New Dwellings as a condition of approving finance, but
  • where the parties had already agreed to include the role and functions of the Architect administering a contract under the ABIC Simple Works 2018 H NSW contract.

These Special Conditions introduce a number of the definitions and mechanisms familiar from the ABIC SW 2018 H NSW contract into the HIA NSW New Homes contract.
