Dealing with Defects – AON Meeting 25 September 2018

Priory Hall, Longboat Quay, Brú na Sionna…these are the familiar names of just some of the apartment and multi-unit estates with construction defects.

Our meeting of Tuesday 25 September 2018 will be an exchange of ideas on financial and legal measures for resolution of defects.

Our guest panellists are Ms. Deirdre Ní Fhloinn and Mr. Nicholas Metcalfe.

Deirdre was a contributor to the hearings of the Oireachtas Housing Committee on construction defects.  The Committee produced its “Safe as Houses?” report in January 2018.  It called for higher building standards, building control, and consumer protection for homeowners who experience defects in their homes.  Deirdre is a barrister and PhD candidate at Trinity College Dublin, researching legal remedies for defective housing.

Nick is a Senior Associate with Mason Hayes & Curran Solicitors.  He is a solicitor with the firm’s Corporate Governance & Compliance team, specialising in Corporate Law.

The meeting will begin at 7pm sharp.

We will have our usual open forum discussion, during which you can raise issues in your own estate.

Join us for tea, coffee and sandwiches from 6.45pm.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 25 September

Meeting of 26 June 2018 – Postponed

We regret to advise that due to circumstances outside of our control, our planned meeting on Building Defects on Tuesday 26 June is postponed.  We will reschedule for a date in early Autumn.

We intend to hear from contributors to the Oireachtas Housing Committee “Safe as Houses?” report on Building Standards, Building Controls & Consumer Protection.  We highly recommend that owners and residents in multi-unit developments read the Report.  It is only 16 pages long and is a very accessible read.

Keep an eye on the AON website, as well as our Facebook and Twitter outlets over the coming weeks for details of our next meeting in Autumn 2018.

We hope you all get an opportunity to enjoy some of the hopefully good weather and have a relaxing break over the summer period. Best wishes for the Summer months !
