My son is a tenant in a block of 16 residential apartments in Sydney, which has a cafe/takeaway on the ground floor which is not adequately cleaned. There is a covered car park occupying the rest of the ground floor. There is an infestation of rats, which in particular get into the engines of cars parked in this car park and chew cables almost every month. This causes great expense to get the cars fixed for tenants ($500 a time), and obviously is an untenable situation going forward. The Owners Corporation denies responsibility for this damage, saying that periodic pest control is the best they can do, despite the fact that it clearly is inadequate.
The apartment owner is on the side of the tenant, but of course there is one owner of 10 of the apartments, who does not care.
Is the Owners Corporation responsible to recompense tenants, and/or what can the tenant/owner do about it? We are at our wits end on how to stop it.
