In our block of 15 units, one lot had twice work carried out on their plumbing which came to a tidy sum.
The previous strata manager (there is a reason why they are no longer there) told the owner it was common property and the OC paid the bill. There was some consultation with the committee but the SM overrode them.
Following the appointment of a new strata manager, we audited the books and determined that this plumbing work was actually owners responsibility. The costs were incurred in the last year.
We informed the owner but as can be expected they are in disagreement with the SM and committee. We are 100% sure that its the owners costs.
The question I pose is, do we go to NCAT to get an order for the owner to pay the money back (to the OC) or do we go to Local Court (Small Claims) for an order?
