In relation to outcomes for the above specific matters:

i. Reference - 201009-000759 – I am advised that in relation to the balcony leak, Access Canberra have engaged with the builder and the builder has agreed to undertake rectification works. The other alleged defects are still being investigated.

ii. Reference - 210226-002214 – I am advised that the complainant was recently referred to ACT Civil and Admirative Tribunal, as the actions of the executive committee within a Unit Plan do not fall within the scope of Access Canberra and ACAT is the appropriate body to hear such matters.

iii. Reference - 201108-000432 – I am advised that this complaint has been assessed in relation to the Australian Consumer Law (ACL). I am informed that as PBS Building engaged Sellick Consultants to draft the report, the contractual relationship, and protections relating to services delivered under the contract (and the ACL), apply to PBS Building.

iv. The other matters raised are still under active investigation.
