My strata manager issued a breach notice alleging that a fixture had been installed on common property. However, they did not respond to any calls/emails so that my property manager/I could ascertain what the actual issue was as we had no knowledge of the fixture, nor the tenant.
The strata manager, then, without consulting us or responding to the calls, arranged for the removal of the fixture and the associated repairs. The costs were invoiced to me. Once we found out what the fixture was, in actual fact it was installed by the tenant. However, I subsequently obtained quotes if I had arranged for the removal myself, the cost would have been materially lower.
(a) Is the strata manager required to give me a reasonable opportunity to remedy the situation myself?
(b) does the strata manager have an obligation to ensure only reasonable costs are incurred?
