A recent decision by NCAT has provided guidance on what needs to be done for an owners corporation to approve renovations done by an owner.
This case involved a dispute between the owners corporation of a large mixed use building in Milsons Point and the owner of a commercial lot in the building who wanted to fit-out his lot as an office involving alterations to common property.
The case produced a surprising outcome and is likely to change the practice that is followed by owners who seek owners corporation approval to renovate.
So, does a common property rights by-law authorise an owner to carry out works affecting the common property?
