AIQS Strata Defects Inspection Panel
The NSW Strata Building Bond and Inspections Scheme began on 1 January 2018. It applies to building contracts executed from this date – or where there is no written contract – building work that commences from this date, to construct residential or partially-residential strata properties of four or more storeys. Buildings that are three storeys or under are covered under the Home Building Compensation Fund.
This Scheme includes a building bond by the developer and mandatory defect inspections and reports on the development by an independent building inspector. It provides a structured, proactive process that resolves building issues quickly and cost-effectively, early in the life of the building.
Developers must arrange for, and lodge, a building bond with NSW Fair Trading equal to two percent of the contract price for the building work. The building bond must be lodged before the occupation certificate is issued. The building bond secures funds (up to the amount of the bond) to be used to pay for any defective building work that’s identified in a final inspection report.
If there is no written contract for the building work or the parties to the building contract (i.e. the developer and the builder) are related or connected persons, the contract price for the building works must be identified in a cost report prepared by an independent quantity surveyor who is a member of Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS).
Where the parties (developer and owners corporation) cannot agree on the costs of the rectification of defects, the Secretary (Dept. Fair Trading - NSW Strata Management Defects Scheme) will appoint a member of the AIQS to make a determination (in respect of rectification costs). The appointment by the Secretary will be through a request to the AIQS.
The following table contains AIQS members who are registered on the NSW Strata Management Defect Determination Panel as of 13th July 2020.
