I have a top floor unit in a multi level apartment complex in Victoria.
The body corporate have indicated that the downstairs apartment has water damage to the wall and carpet and that if it shows it is coming from my balcony I will be liable for all cost restitution, mine and the neighbours. The balcony is a private balcony and the tiles are not cracked or damaged on the surface. It is not yet established what is causing the issue but based on what I have read it appears any waterproofing issues will be my responsibility?
Is this correct? What if it is a slab issue? Are there any avenues for using insurance to cover mine and the neighbours damage?
Can a claim be made against the body corporate building insurance that I contribute to? I do have contents insurance.The building is around 6 years old so if it is found to be a building defect is there a way to recover costs from the builders?You think you have covered all your bases with insurance and when this sort of issue arises. It is very distressing!
