Off-the-plan apartments: the many problems with buying before property is built

Residents of a Lane Cove apartment block who purchased off-the-plan properties say they have been left in limbo after missing building components has allegedly prevented the issuing of a Fire Safety Certificate.

Despite the apartment block being almost new, the residents are alleging many aspects of the building do not comply with the Building Code of Australia, including a fire collar that has been incorrectly fixed to walls, has insufficient seals and doesn't match the manufacturer's instructions.
