Major building defects are still not resolved and the owners of most of the units didn't even bother to follow up. However some units are eager to finalise the process and fix the defects.
One member of executive committee has built an online application on the Internet to get the response from the interested units what defects have been fixed and what are outstanding. With the results of that report owners corporation lodged a complaint with Fair Trading against the builder on the outstanding defects.
The complaint was lodged on 16/01/2013.
A week later, on 23/01/2013 Fair Trading called the owners corporation to confirm the details of the complaint.
Same day they called the builder.
Builder contacted owners corporation on 29/01/2013 to advise that they are coming to inspect the defects again! They explained it as they want to confirm what defects they are responsible for and that they are going to contact Fair Trading after the inspection.
The builder advised they are coming for inspection on Friday 01/02/2013.
From the Fair Trading perspective the owners need to give builder a chance to rectify the defects which is by first inspecting the property.
Thursday 31/01/2013 the builder called and said they can't make it on Friday 01/02/2013 and asked to reschedule for Tuesday 05/02/2013. All the owners were notified already and expected the builder to come on Friday. Some of them took time off work already.
The response to the builder was to come on Saturday 09/02/2013.
To be continued.
