Do Balcony Waterproofing Works in a Class 2 Building over $5,000 Need to Comply with the Design and Building Practitioners Act?

Posted 21 December 2022

Category: Strata, Renovations, Planning Approvals

The Design and Building Practitioners Act 2020 will apply to remedial building works, unless the building works fit within one of the exemptions and statutory exceptions.

Please see our further articles expanding on this point below:

If the building works are not an exempt development, it may be necessary for planning approvals to be obtained of some sort prior to commencing the building works.

For more information, please see the following link: Exempt Development Update
