    If 10% of owners have renovated their balconies without approval by adding tiles to the concrete floor and the rest of us have retained our concrete floor and are considering waterproofing these floors, are we responsible for waterproofing the tiled balconies? My view is that any waterproofing that was on those tiled balconies previously would have been altered or potentially damaged by the tiling, and therefore those owners are responsible for the waterproofing. Property is in NSW.

    Not sure about that – you’d have to prove that the waterproofing was damaged, when (theoretically) it might have been enhanced.

    The interesting question (for me) is whether or not the OC is prepared to order the owners to remove the tiles so they can waterproof the balcony, without paying to have them replaced because they shouldn’t be there in the first place.

    You could sell tickets for that stoush.
