NDIS home modifications FAQs

Where do I find home modifications in my NDIS plan?

Home modifications are funded through the Capital supports budget in an NDIS plan.

What is the role of an Occupational Therapist in arranging home modifications?

An Occupational Therapist or other suitably qualified home modifications assessor can advise and make recommendations on the most suitable options for your needs. This involves a “home modifications assessment”.

Your OT or assessor can explain the process, their role and the NDIS approval process. They will also carry out the assessment and send the relevant information to the NDIA which will then decide whether to approve the modifications. This process must be completed and the funds available in your NDIS plan before construction can begin.

What is a Building Works Project Manager and what do they do?

The NDIS requires that home modifications valued at over $30,000 need an NDIS Registered Building Works Project Manager (BWPM) to assist with design and appointment of builders. Funding for a BWPM will be included in your NDIS plan if required.

Do I need a quote?

Some simple low cost home adaption items costing less than $1,500 do not require a quote, unless they are part of a larger modification. All other items and any NDIS home modifications provided by Farmer Constructions are quotable. For Complex Home Modifications, the NDIA usually requires two quotes. Farmer Constructions can work with you or your OT assessor to provide a quote for all NDIS home modifications.

Will you take care of all the council approvals and inspections?

Clients often tell us this can be the most stressful aspect of a renovation. The good news is that we have a certifier and can take care of all the council approvals and inspections on your behalf if needed as part of the NDIA approved project. 

Can I contribute my own money to get a more expensive fitting or item?

Yes. The NDIA will usually only fund standard modifications and fittings. You may choose to use your own money to contribute to a more expensive finish or fixture that achieves the same or equivalent outcome as the supports in your NDIS plan. Where suitable, the NDIA expects existing fixtures and fittings to be reused. 

How does the contract work with Farmer Constructions as the builder?

Contracts with Building Works Project Managers (BWPMs), builders like Farmer Constructions and other construction professionals are between the participant and the supplier (and do not include the NDIA).
