It appears the ACT doesn’t cover the situation where the OC pays for work undertaken in a lot (emergency or not) that turns out to be an owner responsibility. (Clause 120 refers to specific issues such as those included within by-laws or required through an NCAT order).
Is there experience out there with recovering costs incurred by the OC when a service provider (eg plumber) is called by the OC to service an item (eg kitchen tap) which is the owners responsibility?
I think it would be unreasonable for the OC to be required to obtain written agreement of an owner to pay for the tap repair (example above) when water is flooding the lot.
Any relevant experience would be appreciated.
