I was wondering what advice could be given to a strata committee who has an owner who refuses to remove a camera from their common property door?
The said owner had previously installed a camera on a common property wall, removed this at the request of the EC and has now installed a camera that acts as a peep hole/camera. It is not discreet and changes the appearance of the door and was installed without any approval.
We have already applied to NCAT and the submissions made by the owner against the removal were conveniently lodged without us receiving them in time via post before the hearing. The case has now been adjourned to a full hearing.
The member has advised we need to make a “legal argument”. I understand the individual wishes to have a camera for their own safety, however there is a right and wrong way of going about this. I would have thought that any by law stating that altering common property without the approval of the committee is enough to have NCAT order its removal?
He has also been asked to not film during day light hours as per the order. Do we just have it removed by a third party when it is not being used? We will surely know if the order has then been followed.
