    There is a crack in an external common property expansion joint that is causing water to leak into my unit. It may require an abseiler to do the job as it is on level five.

    The Strata Manager has said they can’t find anyone to fix it and the Strata Committee emailed saying they will do nothing about finding someone to fix it. They say it’s up to me to find someone.

    Is this appropriate behaviour from both the SM and the SC?

    Hi Ziggy

    They have to fix it.

    Strata Schemes Management Act 2015

    106   Duty of owners corporation to maintain and repair property

    (1)  An owners corporation for a strata scheme must properly maintain and keep in a state of good and serviceable repair the common property and any personal property vested in the owners corporation.

    The only way they don;’t is if they resolve to by special resolution and it can’t effect the safety of the property. A leak would effect the common property.
