The strata committee in our Sydney building has discovered that during a previous bathroom renovation in one of the units, the water isolation valve/tap (there is one in every unit) was removed. No permission was sought to do this. The unit was subsequently sold. Since then, the water to the whole building has been turned off on at least two occasions with little notice do to leaking taps in that unit. Can the current owner/landlord be made to reinstall the isolation valve? If so, would that be at the landlord’s cost? If there is no legal requirement to reinstall the valve is there a minimum notification time before the water can be turned off to a whole building?
