From the Forum – Are holiday lets a gap in our virus defences?


How reliable against coronavirus are the health checks at our hotels and airports? Do they even exist?

Sue Williams, our redoubtable Flat Chat roving reporter, has just returned from India where every potential guest at some hotels had their temperatures checked every time they tried to enter – with at least one person she saw being turned away for being too hot.

Returning to Australia, she says we are notoriously lax, compared to other countries.

Which brings us to one FlatChatter who wonders, quire rightly, about Airbnb guests and other short-term letting tourists.  Are we over reacting or under-reacting to the threat of coronavirus?  That’s HERE.

Elsewhere in the Flat Chat Forum:

  • What do I do about a breach notice for noise that allegedly occurred when I wasn’t even at home? That’s HERE.
  • Our committee has sent out a voting paper asking us to vote for one of four options. How would that work in a small scheme like ours? Is that even legal? Maybe, maybe not: Look HERE.
  • They changed the garage door opening mechanism now they say we have to pay for new remotes. Also, my intercom doesn’t work and they say I have to pay for that too. Is that legal, and is it right? That’s HERE.
  • Can the committee force me to change the way NBN is called into my unit? That’s HERE.

There’s always a lot more going on in the Flat Chat Forum.  Check it out.
