Strata Plan

APS undertake comprehensive common area building defect reports both for new strata plans, within their ‘defects liability periods’ or before Home Warranty Insurance expiration and for aged multi unit buildings, which the Strata Schemes Act and now mandatory require to have 10 year maintenance programs in place visit Strata Living.

We provide fee estimates for common area building defect reports upon request.

APS are industry leading specialists for off-the-plan new unit final building defects survey reports and consider they provide some of the most comprehensive and thorough reports currently available, together with sound advice about pre-inspection report action and purchase contract implications, which can be very draconian. APS worked with award winning SMH journalist Gerald Ryle to expose defective building practices, which led to a series of major stories and subsequently a Government inquiry. Bond yourself with your client and SMH Article.

We have completed thousands of reports for individual owners and vendors and if necessary can refer our clients to other specialist consultants such as fire and mechanical engineers and if needs be construction litigation lawyers who specialise in off-the plan purchase contracts.

New Off-The-Plan Unit Building Defect Survey Report costs start at $950 (excl GST).

APS have considerable experience with Strata Plans and recognising that there is often little and conflicting information available to Owners Corporations regarding complex strata laws and issues, we have written specialist Strata Scheme Advisory notes, which are available at a small cost to consumers and are considered quite valuable (Advisory Notes)
