TONIGHT: Tuesday 10 August - Recent Updates in Home Warranty Insurance

Fri Aug 06 2010

The Home Warranty Scheme recently changed, with the Government becoming underwriter for the Scheme on 1 July 2010. Although that in itself is not anticipated to have any impact on the rate and volume of litigation generated in this area of law, there is a related issue which involves the insurers ’managing’ builders who are not able to provide either appropriate assets or security to obtain eligibility for home warranty insurance in their own right.

The situation that managers are inspecting works at progress claim stages and making recommendations as to payments or otherwise may lead to potential for contractual disputes. In addition to this issue, Ms Olsson will address the recent decision of the Court of Appeal in Ace Woollhara (Ace Woollahra� Pty Ltd v Owners - Strata Plan 61424 [2010] NSWCA 101) and the amendments that it occasioned, in her presentation.
