From Building networks
Look what has sneaked up on you just in time for Christmas..
Building (Exempt Building Work) Order 2010 amends Schedule 1 of the Building Act. This takes effect from 23 December 2010 – just in time for those summer projects!
If we look at the Government’s proposals you would think to yourself: “There is no future in building controls.”
Get a copy of the Building Amendment Bill No 3 tabled in parliament this week.
I have spoken with a lot of property managers who are being ripped offand mucked around by the building industry.
They are told by tradespeople “no, you don’t need a building consent to do this work”, only to find out later that they did. Or.. they were told to upgrade their building unnecessarily.
Then the trouble starts with Council.
