In a small strata, all ground floor units have their own on title garden.
In a couple of gardens (those I have seen), there is a staircase in each as the garden is at a lower level than the rear of the unit.
About a decade ago I saw my staircase was rotting away, wobbly and dangerous to use, so it was replaced at my cost.
I need to replace it again as it is again rotting. Odd, as it is “treated pine” and I was assured by the then tradesmen of “decades” of life out of it.
The OC never offered to pay for the previous replacement of my staircase.
I know that staircases were fixtures in the gardens when the building was erected. Does that make them common property?
FYI, the strata’s diagram/plan is not informative in this regard.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
