Open Blog PDFPrint Blog PDF

The Government has released draft regulations to the Home Building Amendment Act 2014 which provide for operation of that Act to commence on 1 December 2014.

A number of organisations made submissions to the Government in relation to those regulations and a final start date has not yet been confirmed. Anyone with a defect claim:

  • which is not yet the subject of litigation or an insurance  claim
  • where more than 2 years has elapsed since the date of completion of the building work; and
  • relying on the defects being structural within the terms of the existing regulations

should immediately seek legal advice to confirm whether those defects will be covered as a major building defect under the new legislation.
