We are new to Strata living..and have recently submitted a renovation request on a ground floor 3 bed unit in Sydney, in a block of 6. We recently purchased it, in an older building, knowing others have been renovated or refurbished in the past.
After submitting our paperwork, plans, architect & engineer reports etc and paying for a lawyer to draw up a by-law, we have had only one querie/response from owners corp. and no other responses. The strata manager has put out two reminder requests to respond, to no avail..so far.
Ive been told by the Strata Manager & NSW Fair Trading that if we dont receive at lease one more response, we have no legal right to do anything further until the next AGM, which is in a years time. Is this true? This will financially ruin our family.
We are renting elsewhere, plus paying the mortgage on this unit..which is in original condition and in dire need of updating.
Any advice or similar stories? We are starting to regret that we ever bought into Strata..
