Defects to common property of strata plan

We acted in an appeal concerning a claim by a strata plan for over $5 million in defects in respect of a greenfield subdivision. The townhouses in the development were insured by two different insurers, but the claim concerned defects in the common property of the strata plan. We were instructed to advise on the extent of our client’s liability for the common property defects given it only insured some of the lots in the subdivision.
