Government Urged to Act After Court Ruling Hits Apartment Owners

The NSW government is being urged to provide new protections for apartment owners who are facing hefty bills to repair shoddy building work following a High Court decision that limits the rights of buyers against builders for defective work. The court ruled on Wednesday that the owners corporation of serviced apartments in a mixed residential and commercial tower in Chatswood could not sue the builder for negligence to recover the cost of fixing alleged defects in common areas, such as cracks in the render on the building's facade.
