In 2013 Philip Bambagiotti presented his paper “Structural / Non Structural Defects in Residential Building” to a full house of fascinated IAMA members and guests. The legislation has since been heavily amended with new categories of and criteria for defects, and a winding back of homeowners’ rights in respect of professional services that fall short.
