Property owners in Queensland have up until 29 March to ensure that they comply with part one of the Safer Buildings for Queensland cladding reforms.

According to Andrew Staehr, Archers the Strata Professionals partner, property owners need to register online at the Safer Buildings website before the deadline.

“Strata buildings that are required to complete part one of the process simply cannot ignore the legislative requirements or they will face unnecessary additional costs in the form of substantial fines and having to engage a building industry professional to prepare a report,” he said.

“Building owners should seek professional guidance to comply with each step of the regulations, and not debate who is responsible.

“This needs to be treated as a separate matter to making the building safe.”

Those who miss the deadline will need to pay fines of $2,611, as well as complete an additional report, according to the Queensland Building and Construction Commission commissioner Brett Bassett.

“Once the 29 March deadline has passed, in addition to risking fines for non-compliance, a building industry professional report will have to be provided to the QBCC,” Mr Bassett said.
