Building Defects – What if I do nothing about it?

Posted 20 May 2024

Category: Building Defects, eBooks

Failing to properly deal with building defects can result in the diminishment of your property value, insurer’s no longer offering cover and can also lead to further economic loss.

In the case of defects in strata, if outside the relevant statutory warranty period the defects will become the burden of either the lot owners (if lot property defects) or the Owners Corporation to rectify at their own expense.

Major defects can be expensive to rectify and can pose a serious threat if ignored. If major defects are left unattended, they can lead to the inability to use or inhabit the building, potential destruction of the building or serious threat of collapse. All these ramifications not only affect the value of your property but can also pose serious risk to your personal safety.
