McKays – QBCC changes tune on defective work
The QBCC has recently released a statement confirming their approach to defective building works and the issuing of Directions to Rectify.
Whilst it is good news when the QBCC clarifies their position on such an issue, this particular news may not be good for builders.
QBCC may now direct a person who has carried out defective or incomplete building work to rectify or demolish the works through the issuing of a Direction to Rectify. They can also issue a Direction to Rectify consequential damage caused by the carrying out of the building work.
