I have a unit with an exclusive use courtyard in QLD. There has been issues with the ground underneath subsiding for at least 2 years.
About 8 months ago, strata organised plumbers to repair something in the complex which involved the plumbers digging up part of my courtyard. They decided there were ‘issues’ they could not fix, put some caution tape up and left the job. I was unaware of this until the tenants contacted me asking what was happening. The tenants are not able to use the side access gate.
I have been chasing this now for at least 8 months with strata and the EC. Work to repair the subsidence has finally begun however the tenants has asked for a reduction in rent of approx $30 per week. This unit is not positively geared (not on purpose, I actually need it to at least break even!).
What are your opinions on the possibility of asking the strata/EC for compensation to cover the reduction in rent the tenants are asking for? Remember there has been a great big hole in the ground which makes the courtyard unusable for at least 8 months.
