Statement from VBA on Porter Davis and Lloyd Group

Quotes attributable to a VBA spokesperson

“We recognise this is a very difficult time for many Victorians.”

“We are working with other government agencies and appointed building surveyors to support owners with information and assistance in this challenging environment.”


Please see fact sheet on builder insolvency available on the VBA website:

Where practitioners undertake domestic building work worth more than $16,000, domestic building insurance (DBI) is a mandatory requirement. DBI covers the client if, before work is complete, the practitioner dies, is declared insolvent or disappears.

Homeowners can check documentation such as their major domestic building contract and their certificate of insurance for details of their insurer.
