It is often the case that defects in construction works only become obvious once a project is complete, which creates issues relating to the cause of the defect, the person responsible and whether or not loss is recoverable. If a person has grounds for making a claim, then the claim must be made within the relevant limitation period under the Limitation Act 1969 (NSW), which may differ depending on whether the claim is for breach of contract, negligence, or misleading and deceptive conduct. It is important to be aware of the existence of the Limitation Act so as to ensure that no claims are made outside of the relevant time period to seek compensation for any damage or loss caused by construction or development works.
