I was wondering if someone could shed some light on a matter I am trying to resolve with my strata regarding CCTV.
Five years ago I asked for permission to put CCTV cameras pointing to my car spaces and the spaces of a few other neighbours. This was after a number of break-ins in the garage and no action from the SC. We funded it and I have managed it since.
So approval was requested, we discussed how many cameras were going to be installed and where they would point to. The committee granted approval and it was installed. However the committee at the time didn’t do proper proceedings to record the approval.
Now the current committee secretary is alleging that the CCTV system is unauthorised and wants to have it removed simply because he can’t find records of the formalities. There is enough evidence to support the fact it was indeed approved and several members of the current committee were in the committee then and would have participated in this approval process.
Is thee a law that says that if it has been more than X amount of years it deemed approved and legal since it was known and no action was taken?
Not to mention the fact that it has been 5 years and everyone but the new secretary knew about it from day one.
I would like to put this matter to rest, what is the best course of action to address this? This has become a very big issue to me since it will affect my insurance policy, not to mention that I won’t be able to detect any break-ins until I discover damage to the vehicles or a missing vehicle.
Note that none of the cameras see into private property, they are in an underground car park.
Thanks in advance.
