    We live in a townhouse complex (NSW) with an enclosed courtyard.  We wish to tile over the existing pebblecrete surface but are unsure of the approval process.  Does this fit under Cosmetic or Minor /Major renovation work.  It is not specifically mentioned under the standard by laws we have adopted for renovations.

    The courtyard is lot property but I thought the pebblecrete surface might be common property ?

    If the terrace is lot property, you probably only need approval from your strata committee and you would have to show your plans to get their OK.  They may be concerned about changing the external appearance of the scheme as well as drainage etc.

    If the surface is common property, then you will need special resolution by-laws if you are planning to dig it up but probably not if you are only planning to cover it.

    Check your registered plan to see if the terrace is marked as common property.

    Is the courtyard common property or lot property?
