Deck and balcony safety

Balconies, decks, balustrades and railings must be built to the Building Code of Australia and relevant Australian Standards. They must be regularly inspected and maintained.

Landlords must provide and maintain rented premises in a reasonable state of repair. When a tenancy starts, faults or damage should be recorded on the condition report.
