NZS 3902 FAQs

Housing, alterations and small buildings contract

NZS 3902 provides a standard form of building contract suitable for owners who are making their own building arrangements. This standard will help comply with the Building Amendment Act 2013 and make the building contract process smoother and easier for homeowner and builder.

NZS 3902 contains an electronic Microsoft Word form that can be filled in by all parties to the contract. The form cannot be used on its own and must be used with the full standard.
