Find full details of the Liquidated Builders Customer Support Payment Scheme.

15 Apr 2024

Guidelines purpose

We're supporting customers of Eligible Liquidated Builders who:

  • signed a Domestic Building Contract or Agreement for a new residential home
  • paid an amount to a liquidated builder that failed to secure Domestic Building Insurance.

This scheme covers:

  • Customers of Eligible Liquidated Builders (as assessed by the Victorian Government) that have gone into liquidation between 1 July 2022 and 28 February 2024.
  • Customers of Porter Davis Homes Group Pty Ltd who made a tender-stage payment that includes payment for plans and specifications of a value of up to 5% of the New Home Contract Price.

The funding supplied under this scheme is a one-off payment to eligible affected customers.

The Liquidated Builders Customer Support Payment Scheme is an extension of the Porter Davis Homes Customer Support Payment Scheme, which has now closed. The extension is for customers who:

  • entered into a Housing Industry Association Domestic Building Contract with Porter Davis 
  • paid a 5% deposit for the building works for their new home but were left without domestic building insurance.

Capitalised terms used in these guidelines are defined in Appendix 1.
