My brother bought a old unit in Melbourne 2 years ago which has rising damp. The previous owner painted up the unit etc and sold it
The body corporate said oh no rising damp has never been in these block of flats. Tenants provided me with a copy of the minutes in 2014 which confirmed a rising damp issue and what the body corporate did to fix the issue and that the building external was painted to cover up the damage on the lower external walls
So the body corporate are lying. I have had a plumber investigate leaks within the apartment and said he found one leak in the shower which he fixed however the rising damp in on every internal wall
2 months later the plumber visited the unit and wrote in his report the moisture reading in all walls has not reduced and that there are no leaks in the unit causing rising damp and that drain it is a body corporate issue
So my question is 1) what do I write to the body corporate as they are playing dumb and 2) what action can I take to get the body corporate to take responsibility ?
