Builders Warranty Defects Liability

Don’t be caught out and miss the deadline to get any defects rectified by the Builder. Body Corporates have responsibility to ensure that Owners are not faced with expensive remedial costs for defects that have been noticed and ignored in the building within 6 years of construction.

According to the QBCC (Queensland Building Construction Commission) the critical dates for a successful Claim are:-

Before 10/10/2014 
Lodge complaint within 3 months of noticing a Structural Defect that appears within 6 years and 3 months from Practical Completion

After 10/10/2014
Lodge complaint as soon as possible but no later than 12 months of noticing a Structural Defect (including water penetration into habitable areas) that appears within 6 years and 3 months from Practical Completion

Here at SWConsult we can provide a Builders Warranty Defects Inspection Report and help the Owners with the process of making the claim to the QBCC.
