Guide for Managing Body Corporate Building Defects

Building defects continue to be an issue, and source of dispute, for bodies corporate.

In attempt to address this increasing issue, the new body corporate regulations – introduced in Queensland on 1 March – now place greater obligations on builders, developers and bodies corporate to make sure building defects are identified and rectified in a timely basis.

In response to these new body corporate regulations and the increasing number of body corporate building defects, a “Guide for managing body corporate building defects” has been created which provides committee members and body corporate managers with important information on the body corporate’s legal position in relation to building defects.
