We have a lot owner who say they had approval to drill (jackhammer) into the concrete slab to change plumbing
they had in the bylaw, “removal of existing fixtures and fittings and replace with new fixtures and fittings”
”removal of floor tiles and wall tiles and replace with new floor tiles and wall tiles”
so the owners Corporation never expected new plumbing
what do you think the definition of fixtures and fittings are? Is it plumbing (pipes) or just Things attached in the same spot without moving them?
Plumbing is not fixtures and fittings.
Fixtures and fittings are things like light fittings, taps, carpets etc. Not sure why you would have a by-law for those.
They also had a bylaw for window furnishings and then ripped out all the windows and replaced with their own saying they had approval
– they still don’t have their window furnishings up 😛
we’re at NCAT next month but just putting in definition about fixtures and fittings and I was 99.9% sure I was correct just needed a sounding board 🙂
Presumably your action at NCAT is to force them to restore common property or to pay for the damage and changes to common property then take responsibility for the changes they have made?
yes it is to restore common property (windows and balcony door) back to sliding from bifold and penalty for replacing 9 other common property windows that now look 20% different from what was there before (shape and size is incorrect)
they also did extra plumbing works and their builder said they were trying to cut a core hole with a jackhammer?! And slipped.
thats the reason why there is a hole in the concrete slab between the two lots
the builder even put in writing that they covered the hole with a rag and concreted over the top, the lot below found water damage and the rags sticking out of their (my) ceiling and the lot owners are refusing the pay for damages as they said they simply deny all responsibility
but that’s why I was trying to figure out if somehow they could use the loop hole of fixtures and fittings as the reason of them drilling into the slab to change plumbing
