Proposal Rejected to Upgrade Common Property

The Supreme Court has rejected a proposal by an owners corporation to upgrade its common property in a way that would have impeded access to an owner’s car space.

The building is a residential strata scheme in inner Sydney containing 80 residential apartments, 27 car space lots and common property.

A particular car space, not attached to any apartment lot within the building, was purchased as an investment.

The owners corporation of the building proposed to change the use of and upgrade an area of common property adjacent to this car space. This upgrade, if implemented, would have impeded the ability of the owner or tenant to drive a standard size vehicle into and out of car space.
