I just bought this property.
and the unit down stairs has advised strata of termite damage on their ceiling.
strata told me this is common property and we have to pay it.
my question is
1. should the unit down stairs pay all or even most of the damage?
2. shouldn;t the strata have responsibility in ensuring the building is checked on a timely basis?
How many units are in the scheme?
The owners corporation has an obligation to maintain and repair common property but unless you can prove contributory negligence – i.e. that someone who had the power to do something knew about the problem but did nothing, then don’t waste your time chasing compensation.
You might be better off employing your building inspector … if you employed one before you bought.
