Who pays for the painting of the entry wooden door and rear wooden door in a townhouse/villa complex?  One SC member is saying that strata only pays for the painting of the front of the doors and not the rear of the doors that face into the townhouse/villa.   The complex is pre-1974.  Help please!  Confused

OK any entrance door is common property however, while the Owners corp gets to choose when the outside of the door gets painted (and in what colour) the convention is that the inside of the door is the owner’s province (so it can match the rest of their interior decor).

So, I guess you could insist that the owners corp paints the inside of your door – but then they will a) decide if it needs painting and b) what colour it should be painted.

This is what the “who’s responsible” document says:

Walls and doors that are on the boundary of the lot are the responsibility of the owners corporation to maintain. Internal walls and doors are the owner’s responsibility. 

Painting doors and gates are part of maintenance – but that has little to do with appearance and everything to do with protecting the door or gate.
