Can NCAT Grant Compensation to Lot Owners?

Finally a conclusive decision.

The President and Deputy President of NCAT have recently handed down a decision in which they have concluded that NCAT does not have power to award a lot owner compensation as a result of a failure by an owners corporation to repair defects in the common property.

This decision is likely to be followed by NCAT in the future and resolves a longstanding controversy about this issue.
