    I am going to renovate my very small ensuite as my family don’t think it is user friendly for an old bird. I will not be touching load bearing walls or changing plumbing pipes etc. I will be getting rid of a high shower hob and small wall between basin and shower. This small wall does not impact any major wall. I am getting a quote from a reputable company on 9 Feb and Uniting Home Maintenance are sending an occupational therapist to make sure I have all the necessary help

    Is there anything I need to do apart from informing the strata committee and getting the OK from them which I don’t think should be a problem.   We have an AGM on 2 February with a committee meeting after. I am on the committee and a long term (35 years) resident of the building

    The key to this is waterproofing,

    If you are changing the floor tiles, or tiles on walls that are shared with adjoining flats or common property, you should have a special resolution by-law to shift responsibility for the waterproofing from the owners corp to you..

    It is too late to have anything added to your AGM agenda, so (if you need it) I hope you have a standard by-law that allows you to agree to the conditions of a by-law subject to its approval at the next AGM.

    Otherwise, you could put something in writing that can be agreed at the next general meeting.

    But if you aren’t re-tiling the floors or common walls, you should be OK.
