I live in an apartment that is 5 years old and my neighbor bought a unit as a first owner which has a courtyard approximately 100sq meters covered with synthetic grass of which 25 per cent is lifted up whenever there is a strong wind blowing, there have been 3 attempts to rectify this problem, my question is: Who is responsible for the repair of the grass...if the builder has tried and failed, is it the responsible of our strata?

Kray - I would think that the courtyard turf (be it synthetic or real) would be an owner and/or a builder responsibility. If the turf is within an Exclusive Use courtyard it is not the Owners Corporation's responsibility. It is the responsibility of the person benefiting from having the exclusive use.

If the apartment is still within the builder warranty period then the Lot Owner would be wise to keep pursuing the builder for a solution. Once the warranty period expires the problem will be the responsibility of the Lot Owner.
