Need help applying for your Owner Builder Authorization?
This short step-by-step video has been created to help with the many inquiries we receive from individuals wanting to know how to apply to BC Housing to begin the Owner Builder Authorization process.
So you want to build your own home, but don’t know where to start?
Well, help is on the way. If you want to build your own home in the Province of British Columbia, you have to obtain an Owner Builder Authorization from the BC Housing Licensing & Consumer Services (LCS).
We believe the Owner Builder Exam Preparation Course has covered all of the recommended topics the BC Housing Licensing and Consumer Services (LCS) department has listed on their website. Based on our belief, we are prepared to stand behind you in your efforts to be able to build your own home by allowing you to attend another offering of the course in an instance where you fail the exam. There will only be a nominal cost of $60.00 to cover meals and refreshments.
As of July 4, 2016 in BC, all applicants to the BC Housing Licensing & Consumer Services (LCS) for an Owner Builder Authorization are required to meet all eligibility criteria and pass an exam to evaluate their knowledge and understanding of home building basics.
