Question: In NSW is there is an obligation for the strata to provide a common area water tap / garden tap for use of residents for garden watering and car washing?
Answer: There is no general obligation to install a common area tap to which you refer, however, the owners corporation is free to do so by special resolution if it wishes.
This would be an improvement or enhancement of the common property pursuant to Section 108 of the new strata legislation.
Once installed, the owners corporation may restrict use of the tap.
