Owners Corporation Told to Repair Lot Property by NCAT

There is a common misconception that an owners corporation is not responsible for repainting a water damaged ceiling in a lot or repairing consequential water damage to a lot that is caused by a common property defect.

In a recent case, NCAT held that:

  • an owners corporation is responsible for carrying out those repairs;
  • the common property memorandum does not exempt an owners corporation from having to perform those repairs.

Here we discuss the case and explain why an owners corporation is not exempt from repairing damage to lot property NCAT Orders Owners Corporation to Repair Lot Property
