When you need an LBP
If you’re thinking of getting building or renovation work done on your house or apartment, you need to check if it’s Restricted Building Work (RBW). If it is, you might need a licensed building practitioner (LBP) to do it.
Head over to the Building Performance website(external link) to read about using licensed people for your building work.
You can also find out about your rights and obligations(external link) in the consenting process.
