VLOG: Todd Neal talks Demolition and Occupation in two recent Lane Cove Council property decisions

Check out the below Vlog on two recent cases relating to the same property in Northwood.  The first case was the Court of appeal decision in Ross v Lane Cove Council [2014] NSWCA 50. The second case was Lane Cove Council v Chami [2014] NSWLEC 18.

These cases are interrelated, but have different implications.  The Ross decision highlights the importance of correctly joining all relevant parties to a set of proceedings which involve an order to demolish or reinstate a building.  The Chami decision highlights the importance of obtaining an Occupation Certificate if occupation of a building is sought, and the need for compliance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA), or the National Construction Code which comprises the relevant volumes of the BCA.
