Like all property sectors, many pundits held grave concerns for the development industry at the outset of the COVID-19 outbreak, given the forecast drop in residential values across the board. It was said that house prices around Australia could crash by up to 20-30%.
Following major reforms to the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act earlier this year, Government is now considering a significant review of the role property developers play in the construction industry, and is considering a regime that could require property developers to undertake licensing requirements - similar to that of contractors or subcontractors.
