‘The Great Australian Nightmare’ … after squirrelling away her pay cheques the lady put down a 10 percent deposit on an off-the-plan unit in the $52 million Peony Place development at Kellyville …
To discover the defects and demanded they be fixed or her deposit be refunded … the developer claimed the building was ticked off by a private certifier and would not budge!
-the private certifier was formerly part of Dix Gardner Group; which has had two certifiers banned
The developer, SHANGHAI-based BOILL Holding Group, enlisted local builder DECODE … it may be a good idea to note this and look out for other projects across Sydney … including the Lower North Shore!
A pre-settlement inspection revealed:
-the building did not comply with either the National Construction Code or Australian Standards
-the fire evacuation path and parking space did not meet minimum size requirements
-and there was insufficient drainage
OUGHT there not be immediate intervention by regulators when a Council confirms ‘considerable non-compliances’?
WHY should home buyers be subjected to taking mounting legal action at their own expense?
NSW INC … cutting Red Tape and Deregulation … whose side are they on?
