Hello can someone please shed some light on this issue. We own a strata townhouse in a complex of 3. One of the balconies need complete replacement.
All owners are fine with this but the SM claims the building is a class 2 building, therefore all the quotes to replace a balcony, on a second level from the ground, size is approximately 5 sqm, timber flooring with aluminum balustrades has been quoted from $88K to $101K which is a blatant rip off.
These quotes are coming in because we are supposedly a class 2 building and the property is in a regional area where the tradies believe that they can charge anything they want. Two of the 3 townhouses are built on ground level. One of the townhouses sits on top of a carport where all owners drive into to access their on title garages.
Two of the 3 townhouses have 1 garage and the townhouse that sits on top of the carport has a double garage and storm room as per the attached diagram. The common area is approximately 10-15sqm. Are we a class 1 or class 2 building?
And if a class 2 building how do we get an exemption from some government department for this work as the balcony needing replacement is on a townhouse that sits on ground level.
