      When you submit your OC’s stage 1 application (for the NSW Electric Vehicle Building Ready Program), the Office of Energy and Climate Change return a deed for you to sign. This commits them to sending an expert assessor to specify a feasible way of installing EVBR infrastructure that can be used by all occupants and it commits the OC to paying for the assessor. The fine print in the deed requires the OC to admit the assessor to the site and usher him/her around common property to see what’s possible. However, the deed prohibits the assessor from all private property.

      Why? Suppose the best way to wire the building is to run a cable under unit 6’s laundry. The assessor needs to look in the laundry to see what is feasible but isn’t allowed to go there.

      I’d guess the deed was drafted by a lawyer who’s never served on a strata committee and probably never lived in strata.

        In the specific case you have mentioned, common electricity cabling would NEVER be run through a lot owners property.

        And the assessor is not looking how to wire it up. he is looking at the existing electrical infrastructure to determine what system can be installed.

        Its up to the electricians to make it work (and they will)

          The lot stops at the floor level. Below that are common cables set into the floor slab. I don’t understand your assertion; a cable or pipe is common unless it’s in the cubic space of a unit and serves only that unit.
