Master Builders Victoria yesterday wrote to the Victorian Government expressing its concerns over and call for changes to the Cladding Safety Victoria Bill 2020 that is currently before Parliament.

Master Builders Victoria CEO Rebecca Casson said the consequence of the legislation will see builders vulnerable to claims that they can neither have foreseen, nor protected against.

“While the legislation aims to protect consumers, it will mean claims against builders who have not been given any opportunity to protect themselves, and will result in further insolvencies, and further losses for the Victorian economy.”
