    Hi Amanda et al,

    We have an apartment in our self-managed building where the tiles are starting to come off the bathroom walls.

    Details are:
    Building is c. 20 years old. Tiles are original, on internal plasterboard walls (i.e. not lot boundary walls). According to builders, they’re coming off due to expansion/contraction of substrate (with no relief joints).

    My question is whether they’re an owners corporation or lot owner responsibility to repair.

    Is this a simple question or are there other factors that affect it?

    Thanks,

    David

    Hi Sydney Chair,

    If the walls in question are not shown on the strata plan with thick black lines, they are not boundary walls. If there is nothing in the by-laws or otherwise noted on the strata plan that would indicate they are common property, then they are not common property and not OC responsibility.

    Amanda.

    Thanks Amanda,
    That’s exactly what I needed.

    Best,
