We are having defect work carried out at our complex. Throughout this process communication has been appalling. Sometimes we have not been informed of work proceeding until the workers show up to begin. We have continually requested that we be given notice of impending work, we keep being told they will… however, this rarely happens.
Which brings me to today. I am currently at home recovering from surgery this week, I am uncomfortable & in a lot of pain. At 7.30 this morning without prior warning I was awoken to the jackhammering of the courtyard that sits above my apartment. The tiles need to be brought up for re- waterproofing.
We have concrete ceilings & the sound level reached over 100 decibels for several hours.
As you can imagine recuperating at home was out of the question. At short notice I had to find alternate accommodation for myself, my partner & our 2 cats. As I write this I still have ringing in my ears.
I have found out that the Strata Manager, Building Manager & SC knew from last Friday that this work would be beginning today, they had a whole 7 days to let us know, but didn’t bother. Had they let us know, I would have more than likely attempted to postpone my surgery, failing that, I would have organised alternate accommodation for myself & my pets & not had to endure several hours of noise at 100 + decibels while trying to find somewhere to stay.
I have now moved to alternate accommodation & feel that the Owners Corporation should be covering the cost as living in my apartment for the next 4 days is impossible. Our Strata Manager’s response was “Oops, sorry we didn’t tell you & you are kidding if you think the OC is going to pay for your accommodation.”
Do we have any grounds for having our accommodation paid for?
