We are 12 apartments in a luxury apartment block by the ocean. Prices vary from 2.5 to 3.5 million.
One side of the block faces the street the other side faces a very well used park with a path passing our block to the beach.
The two ground floor apartments have private gardens. Our problem is that the owner of one of these garden apartments who lives alone constantly disobeys strata laws. Gardens are not maintained to the standard you would expect from this type of bock, a balcony which is very visible from the path, which would have at a conservative 400 people a day pass by, cluttered with cardboard boxes and other paraphernalia.
Approximately six months ago , owner of this apartment asked for approval for a tool shed to be erected in her garden, to house tools and bikes. The apartment has a two car garage which should be able to be used for this purpose.
The toolshed was rejected outright by the remainder of the owners and also council regulation pertaining to easement.
In late February a cubby house which is actually bigger than the tool shed was erected without permission. In addition a ten foot tall basketball ring which is now level with my balcony (I am on level above) has been installed together with a punching ball on a stand.
As mentioned previously, owner lives alone with occasional visit from family. So far we have yet to see anyone, child or adult use this equipment. At a recent meeting to gain approval for the already installed cubby house and again for the tool shed, both were unanimously voted against.
In addition to this some plants, totally out of keeping with the rest of the landscaping have been planted on owners property but beside the common garden.
Position at present is strata manager will send letter and wait thirty days and wait again two weeks. Why do we have to wait when a bye law has been blatantly ignored. The longer these structures stay up the less chance we have of pulling them down.
Also, should the strata manager send all owners copies of his correspondence as we feel he is not being forceful enough.
