Question: Can NSW providers rescind an Annual Fire Safety Statements for non payment of invoices? If so, how is it legally done?
Answer: We are not aware of how a document like this can be rescinded.
We are not aware of how a document like this can be rescinded as the Annual Fire Safety Statements is completed as part of a regulatory process, and should have been provided to Council. At that point, the Council, and those using the building are relying upon it. In our view, it becomes an AFSS for the purposes of the Regulations.
