NSW fair trading advises:
The Fire Safety and External Wall Cladding Taskforce launched a campaign this month, aimed at residents and tenants of multi-storey apartment buildings in NSW.
Owners can ensure their building is safe, by:
- finding out if their building has aluminium cladding
- checking whether their building has a current and up-to-date fire safety statement
- ensuring a fire safety professional has inspected any cladding, and
- taking immediate action to make any recommended changes.
Tenants should contact their managing agent or landlord to check if the above steps have been taken.
