We are a small 14 unit complex located in NSW where bylaws were created to allow enclosing of balconies for some units. 8 units have enclosed from top floor to ground floors – just more than half.
Drainage is via a pipe at one end that does not extend very far out and there is no “lip” on edge to contain water from cleaning windows, frames, & ceiling from salt and grime and it flows over the edge onto windows below (enclosed balcony windows) that then have this dirt on them.
Minutes show tensions have risen for years since this unforeseen consequence of enclosing for some and not others – to the point where this majority can vote that no cleaning can be done on balconies – not even the glass railings – ever – and no pot plants allowed on balconies.
Any compromise e.g. cleaning in the rain becomes heated with raised voices. Not ideal when these fixtures need cleaning for maintenance and aesthetic purposes.
How can a by law for some then not allow others to maintain their common property ? What to do ? Any other buildings have this problem ? Thank you for any ideas.
