The building started life as an hotel and was later converted into residential apartments . At the time of the conversion the building works had in parts been sub-standard. The original building defects were supposedly fixed under a Home Owners Warranty Insurance claim – these works were also in part defective resulting in another claim by the Owners Corporation (OC) against the builder who undertook the repairs.
Close Consultants undertook a detailed site investigation and prepared a report which was submitted to the Lawyers representing the OC. The report was submitted to the Builder and subsequent detailed negotiations took place between all the parties involved. The out come of the negotiations was that builder returned to the property and made good the defective work.
