The prevalence of building defects in strata managed buildings can result in significant financial hardship for the property owners. Professor Sharon Christensen recently provided an insightful presentation on the regulation of building defects in strata managed properties. She argued that the current approach to the regulation of building defects does not meet the specific needs of strata owners. Her presentation outlined her recommendations for future reform in this area.
Professor Christensen’s presentation, titled Designing a Regulatory Response to Building Defects in Strata – More Disclosure is Not the Answer, was delivered at the 15th Australian College of Strata Law Annual Conference at Noosa, Queensland.
