When living in a strata property, there are several considerations for managing water defects and the damage it can cause for both your lot and common property.

Water can find its way into any nook and cranny of a building and has the potential to damage ceilings, floors, and other building fixtures. Taking a proactive approach may not only save you a lot of stress and inconvenience but potentially a lot of unnecessary expense too.

Our Community Living guides are designed to address the topics that will help enhance community living throughout our country.

By discussing these topics and explaining what they are, how they affect you, and addressing the common misconceptions around each topic, we aim to provide you with the tools to enhance liveability, certainty, and harmony within Australia’s community living landscape.
