Buildings in Australia are plagued with defects. Defects impact the structure and value of a building and have drastic impacts on owners and residents. This guide aims to provide committee members and owners with an understanding of how defects are legally classified, what the most common defects are, why defects happen in the first place, and when committees are legally required to fix them.
Our Community Living guides are designed to address the topics that will help enhance community living throughout our country.
By discussing these topics and explaining what they are, how they affect you, and addressing the common misconceptions around each topic, we aim to provide you with the tools to enhance liveability, certainty, and harmony within Australia’s community living landscape.
