Defects & Defect Management
Normally Managers don’t or won’t get involved in the mind field that can face an OC upon completion and ongoing suitability of construction works. The courts are log-jammed with these cases and most are unsuccessful. MICM Property has had unique experience and expertise over the years in working with developers and builders dealing with issues of questionable construction standards–see ‘Experience’ herein.
