    The NSW government’s decision not to release the identities of the 444 buildings in the state that have potentially deadly flammable cladding may have a more political side than questionable fears of terrorism.

    The list of 444 buildings across NSW clad in potentially flammable material has been released to the NSW Parliament, according to a story in the Sydney …

    there is a slim chance of soom loony doing something disastrous, but then if someone was inclined they would try and see what happens, it is more about an angry backlash because the government decided that self-management would be great and they would save more for their golden trough, when has any business been concerned about anything other than squeezing blood from a stone, look at all the business that have been privatised on the promise of cheaper costs, I would love somebody to tell me one :). I firmly believe all they are worried is themselves and not the person who spends a million on something that will cost then significantly more to have fixed.

    How does a general Strata Report reveal issues about cladding if the subject does not come up in the minutes?

    Because the letter from the Council and the State Government telling them that they have suspect cladding would be in correspondence.

    Anyone who buys into a block where they can see cladding on the outside and doesn’t demand a forensic check of all strata records is an idiot.

    I was talking to a planning lawyer and former conveyancer just this morning and he said that the problem is that too many potential buyers are struck by FOMO (fear of missing out) to demand the checks that they need.  Also, some real estate agents provide strata checks with their documentation, but they won’t necessarily delve into correspondence and the like, where these dangers may be hidden.

    But I still think that anyone who sees cladding on a building they are thinking of buying into, and doesn’t ask the obvious question of the vendor – is that the nasty stuff that could either cost me a fortune or get me killed –  needs their head examined.
