    I also live in an OC unit. I have no contact with the Landlord. As I understand it, as occupiers we have a right to approach the manager and/or the committee if there is a problem around the common property – ie the maintenance is terrible and the property is becoming dirty and neglected. The manager is saying we have to go through the Landlord. According to all the relevant Victorian legislation an occupier can approach the management directly.
    Does anyone have any comments about these rights? Also, I believe tenants can now take problems to VCAT. Thanks

    As a “tenant”, you have all the rights that the Owners Corporations Act states that you have as an “occupier”.

    Also, I believe tenants can now take problems to VCAT

    That’s right, for all matters where an occupier is allowed to commence an action against another party under the Owners Corporations Act.  It’s not everything.  But it’s many things.

    I should note that it’s not always an easy path for a tenant to take, especially considering that a tenant could decide, perhaps much more easily, to simply rent somewhere else.
