The building regulation environment in NSW is in for a shake-up following the resignation of respected NSW Building Commissioner DAVID Chandler.

Chandler will finish his role in November after just over three years.  No public announcement was issued.

Karen Stiles, Executive Director of the Owners Corporation Network, expressed shock at the news and praised Chandler’s contribution.

“It was a sad day for NSW apartment purchasers and industry alike when NSW Building Commissioner, David Chandler OAM, resigned without warning, Stiles said.

“Since his appointment in late 2019 the Commissioner single handedly “turned the Titanic” in terms of refocusing an industry in turmoil to be forward facing and hopeful.  It’s been a joy, as a consumer advocate, to see thousands of purchasers being saved years of defects misery through proactive audits while watching the growing pride of the good industry players disenfranchised for so long.

“The Owners Corporation Network sincerely hopes Mr Chandler continues his good work in some other form after November.”
