Defective building work in the news again

8 December 2021

As reported in the Courier Mail over the weekend, defective building work continues to be a significant issue for bodies corporate.

Body corporate regulations introduced earlier this year were designed to provide owners with greater protection – by placing significant obligations on the builder, developer and the body corporate to make sure defective building work is identified and rectified on a timely basis.

In response to the change in regulations – and the increasing instances of defective building work in bodies corporate – Mahoneys has prepared a guide to help body corporate committees, and body corporate managers, with important information on how bodies corporate can protect their rights and interests.

Because there are strict deadlines for taking action, it is crucial that the body corporate obtains timely expert advice.
