Fire and life safety is becoming an area of greater significance for owners corporations as a combination of non-compliant buildings and increasingly vigilant local councils result in more and more significant work being undertaken in this area.
Specialist expert advice is required to ensure that owners corporations retain legal rights and are not forced into undertaking unnecessarily expensive remedial work. Commonly, appeal rights to the Land and Environment Court are quickly lost resulting in an inability to negotiate with a local council from a position of strength.
Our experience in this area indicates that owners corporations regularly stumble through this process without any appropriate strategic legal oversight or control.
