NSW: Q&A Common Property Defects and Reimbursement for Repairs


Question: I’m renovating my unit’s flooring. The flooring has magnesite and needs to be repaired by the Owners Corporations first. Should they draft the bylaw for the renovation?

I am renovating my entire Unit’s Flooring. The Strata Committee is requesting that prior to doing any flooring renovations, the magnesite needs to be completely removed and any concrete spalling repairs need to be carried out.

As the Strata Committee needs to repair the flooring, is it the Owners Corporation’s responsibility to draft a new By-Law for my bathrooms?

Answer: The OC is carrying out its statutory duty to repair & maintain the common property and therefore, does not require a by-law.
