When should you call us?
Who is responsible?
Burst pipe in the bathroom
If it is in a boundary wall, the owners corporation is responsible. If it is in an internal wall it is the lot owner's, unless the pipe services more than your lot, in which case it is owners corporation responsibility.
The water from the shower is not draining away
Plumbing under the floor is the responsibility of owners corporation.
The shower head is not working properly
It is the lot owner's responsibility.
The kitchen sink was broken and has caused water damage in both my unit and my neighbour's unit
Problems with everything in the airspace of a bathroom or kitchen including baths, toilets, sinks and dishwashers are the owner's responsibility. However the owners corporation’s building insurance may cover some of these fixtures for damage.
There is damp and mould in my unit
The owners corporation is responsible for water penetration problems coming in through external walls or the floor. The owner is responsible for the mould on their walls.
Water leaks onto my balcony from the unit above every time they water their plants
If the water is running off common property, the owners corporation is responsible. If it is caused by over watering by another owner or resident, that person is responsible.
