Queensland cladding regime – latest update

The next key date in the Queensland combustible cladding regime falls on 3 May 2021 and any affected owners (or body corporates) must have their building assessed by a fire engineer and notify the QBCC advising the results of the inspection by that date.

This only affects owners whose initial inspection report (which was due 29 March 2019) indicated the building contained potentially flammable materials requiring inspection by a fire engineer or owners who failed to meet the earlier reporting dates.

The result of this inspection will determine whether work is required to replace flammable materials. If the inspection determines there is a cladding fire risk, those affected buildings will require notices to be displayed to notify owners and third parties of these risks.

More information about the cladding regime can be found in our recent article, Navigating the new cladding regime, and you can contact one of our Real Estate lawyers to discuss any issues.
