I live in a townhouse complex where 6 of the 7 townhouses are underneath a penthouse apartment.
With one week to go before our AGM the owners upstairs have suddenly circulated/ submitted a detailed proposal for what can only be described as a major renovation of their entire penthouse including relocating kitchen and bathroom, adding a lift , various other structural modifications etc. The implications for all owners and neighbours are huge , months of reno noise amongst one of them, implications to common property etc. Council consideration would be one issue but we would need independent engineering reports about accoustics , engineering structure etc, etc.
My head is spinning as to where to start. My questions are :- does a guide or check list exist anywhere for the sorts of things we owners (who live underneath) need to to ensure are major aspects are considered. Who would bear the costs of needing to go to independent experts for reports ? Obviously we will have to suggest consideration be deferred to a subsequent meeting because of the short notice.
