Plumbing Specific Contracts

Whether you’re building a house, carrying out a renovation, or doing any kind of contracting work, you need a written agreement to make sure all your bases are covered.

MPAQ has created plumbing specific contracts that have undergone extensive industry consultation and testing to ensure they are specifically suited for plumbers in Queensland.

  • Contract for Domestic Works

    Contracts for Domestic Works can be used when completing work for a homeowner. It is suitable for businesses operating in Queensland.

    To comply with specific legislative requirements for contracts, we have developed three contracts that must be used depending on the value of the works being undertaken:

You also receive text that needs to be added to your quote and invoice templates, both of which refer to the terms and conditions document. This document is then held at your business and forwarded to clients on request.
