BuildingPro was interviewed by 9News about tougher laws to protect home buyers
Our petition to Queensland Parliament was tabled on 16th August and the Attorney-General, the honourable Yvette D’Ath, in her response has directed the QUT property law team to consider the petition for their final recommendations due in October. This is excellent news! It will be good to have the academia support this cause. We were picked up by the media such as ABC radio and interviewed by 9 News about the petition for tougher laws to protect home buyers from buying a defective property.

There is still time for you to sign the change.org petition.
Support the change to the law to ensure consumers are protected against purchasing a structurally defective property! Your children and the next generation deserve fairer laws in place for when they buy their future homes.
Currently, when you buy a home throughout Australia (except in the ACT), a seller cannot be held accountable if structural defects (eg subsidence issues or flood and termite damage) are found after the property has sold, leaving the unsuspecting buyer with a costly “lemon”.
It’s time to give this unjust law a shake-up!
