Proposal for Legislative Reform for Residential Property Defects in Singapore

Always revitalising and evolving


About the project

This project was undertaken to explore whether there is a need for law reform in relation to avenues for redressal of defects in residential property disputes.  In this regard, the report sets out some broad recommendations resulting from an analysis of the legal position in Singapore as well as other jurisdictions. 

The report explains thorny issues arising in the contest of defects in property and the law relevant to addressing such issues. As such, the report is likely to be of practical relevance for not just lawyers, but also residential property owners, management committees of strata developments , developers and contractors.
