My unit is a strata scheme apartment. I renovated my bathroom a few years ago. I broke all the original tiles, did new waterproofing, new shower area, new toilet etc, basically everything new in my bathroom. I did not notice that was a major renovation as it involves changing waterproofing.
Recently, I noticed that I should have told my strata manager and O/C, and it requires approval from O/C and drafting a bylaw for that. Luckily no one has noticed that I changed my bathroom. Now, I want to rent out my apartment. Should I just hide it, and remain as a secret until the O/C finds out? Or should I tell my strata and O/C about the renovation, and find a lawyer to draft a by-law? How much will it cost me? What is the usual process?
(I don’t recall any information of the company which completed the renovation. And I lost the invoice.)
If i choose to hide it up, and my O/C notice that a few years later, will I be in big trouble and get fines from council ?
If the waterproofing fails, and water leaks into the apartment below, is it my responsibility to fix everything or will O/C responsible for it ?
