OK – this is from a good friend of mine who is into property manager training (actually he used to be employed as a general manager in my company).
From his post on the SA property management community on FB:
So South Aussie Property Managers….
Owners may NOT be able to do their own repairs after all!
Here’s further proof that my ‘source’ might be right!
An owner of a rental property is unable to perform repairs if they DO NOT have a licence as a building contractor!
Apparently a landlord is being taken to court as we speak having ‘breached’ this new piece of legislation.
Read it for yourself! I just tried CBS to clarify, but phones are in after-hours of course!
If someone could clarify this with CBS further, that’d be great!
Oh the fun this will give property managers letting their owners know.
Times like these I wish I was a PM again!XeniaParticipant@xenia-alexarealestateJoin Date: 2015Post Count: 21
May be related only to building work: http://www5.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/sa/consol_reg/bwcr2011398/s4.html#domestic_building_workBennyModerator@bennyJoin Date: 2002Post Count: 1,416
Wow !! After a bit of a look, it seems to indicate that if I was a landlord in SA, I cannot paint my own IP, nor replace a broken paling in a fence, and I think it also mentions Paving, so I can’t fix a broken paver….
I sincerely hope that no other State Govts are thinking of following their lead!! The quote “Bureaucracy gone mad” comes to mind. Or is “revenue raising” a more apt quote? Sheesh.
Thanks for bringing it to our attention, Xenia. Are SA landlords looking to riot in the streets any time soon?

All a lot of misunderstood bruha. It’s related to building work over a certain threshold ($12,000 if I remember correctly), as per norm.

Ah, thanks mate !! Yes, that does sound like “as per normal”. I have turned off the pacemaker now….. ;)
