A serious water leak occurred in our building inside an apartment, resulting a small piece of carpet being taken up so the plumbing could be repaired. The plumbing issue was the responsibility of the Strata. To carry out this work a small section of the carpet was taken up. The carpet is 19 years old and very worn, and when the section was taken up the underlay was in very poor condition (perished in parts, through wear not the water leak). The owner is unhappy with how it looks now that it has been put back down and wants it remedied. The Managing Agent has advised verbally that the strata insurance is not responsible for this. The apartment owner is not insured for contents. Some Strata Committee members believe the carpet should be replaced out of the building funds. Does the Strata Committee have the power to make this decision, or should it go to an Extraordinary Meeting.
