I was wondering whether anyone had been in the same situation as me. I plan to renovate my townhouse before moving in. Basically rippping out 3 old bathrooms and refreshing them, changing carpet to floorboard and repainting the interiors.

I will be getting the keys on 1 Nov and would like to start the renovation on 3 Nov. It will take about 6 weeks and it's cutting close to Christmas

I have submitted the plan to the Secretary of the Strata Committee. She did mention that since I'm not an owner yet, they may not be able to give me an approval to proceed. Fair enough. I did suggest for them to have a meeting on 1 Nov to approve the plan as I would be the owner then

Has anyone of you managed to get approval before settlement? How did you go about it? Is there anywhere in law that allows for this?

Thanks and hope to hear your feedback

You are not an owner so you don't have capacity/standing to seek approval.

The only way you could do it is ask the current owner to lodge the request, which would include some sort of notation that you are taking on the request upon settlement.

Note if any by-law is needed then the owners have to approve that, not the Committee.
