Mahoneys dedicated Body Corporate team was featured in – Lookup Strata Magazine where on pages 4 & 5 we discuss new body corporate regulations that now place greater obligations on builders, developers and bodies corporate to make sure building defects are identified and rectified on a timely basis.
In response to the regulations – and the increasing number of body corporate building defects – we have prepared a “Guide for managing body corporate building defects”, which provides committee members and body corporate managers with important information on the body corporate’s legal position in relation to building defects and covers:
- what is a building defect;
- the body corporate’s rights
- the body corporate’s obligations;
- where the developer fits in;
- taking action against the builder;
- the role of the QBCC;
- the role of the caretaker;
- the role of body corporate manager; and
- time frames for taking action.
A copy of the guide can be found here.
Because there are strict deadlines for making a claim, it is crucial that the body corporate obtains timely expert advice on how to navigate the body corporate’s rights and obligations.
Mahoneys is recognised as one of Australia’s leading body corporate and building dispute law firms, having successfully acted on a number of significant building defect disputes.
