In a landmark ruling, today the Appeal Panel of NCAT has ordered an owners corporation to upgrade a balustrade to comply with the Building Code of Australia.
This case marks the first time that an owners corporation has been ordered to upgrade an unsafe balustrade to achieve compliance with the Building Code of Australia.
The case cuts against the long held view that the provisions of the Building Code of Australia are not retrospective and that an owners corporation does not have to upgrade an unsafe balustrade to comply with the Code.
