I live in a 2 storey Sydney apartment- built in the 70s. The original balcony was enclosed (lower floor) with glass windows & a roof in the 80s (DA approved). We currently look out from the top level to the roof of the enclosed balcony below. The roof isn’t common property (because the whole roof was redone recently & the strata didn’t include ours in the upgrade). The downpipes / gutters were done tho.
We are on the top floors no one above us. There will be no change to anyone’s views behind us other than a glass balustrade.
We are be proposing a new structure (demolition of old & rebuild with lighter material but with a balcony above instead of flat roof). We will have exclusive use of the roof as no one else can get to it other than us from top floor.
guessing that’s a lot to visualize ! It’s an odd predicament as we it’s not common property exactly. We have been told anything above 2.44 meters is not “ours” but I’ve read it can be infinity?
commercial calculations are going to be interesting to ascertain a price we are to pay for the roof. Presuming the OC are even going to allow it.
Would appreciate any advice on how best to approach this?
