L2 Construction Series:
What is a defect, can we manage defect with construction technology
This topic will touch on “What is a defect” and whether the defects fall within those that the developer would be required to remedy if notified within the Defects Liability Period(DLP) which is 24 months after vacant possession is issued to the owner. We will discuss what constitutes a defect and how it will change over time with fair wear and tear. What constitutes a defect at handover may not constitute a defect after 24 months. We will also discuss “What is not a Defect” and issues emerging over time.
Under the Malaysian Housing Developers Act, the Defects Liability Period starts from the date you receive vacant possession and the keys. Within this period, the homeowner needs to check for any damage, defects as well as poor or faulty workmanship.
One of the greatest challenges for property developers and contractors during the 24 months of defect liability period (DLP) is the defect record management. In this session, ProSales will be featured to show us how its cutting-edge software PropTech is able to help the property developers and contractors in overcoming a number common problems during the DLP in effectively managing the defects.
