Do you find that the common areas of your scheme are not maintained to a satisfactory standard?
Are you unsure if your common property is kept in an acceptable condition?
A Common Property Condition Report could be the answer you are looking for.
Common areas can be an oasis, a short trip up the lift and you are in paradise. Unfortunately, some common properties are not properly maintained to an acceptable standard and what should be paradise ends up being an area you want to avoid.
A Common Property Condition Report involves a detailed inspection of your common property to ensure all common areas are maintained to an acceptable standard. This includes an inspection of all common areas, photographs of common areas with notes attached and pool water samples.
When living in a Strata community the common property is often a place you go to relax, enjoy the space and entertain guests. You therefore expect the common property be presented in a first class and hygienic condition.
When a Common Property Condition Report is conducted a first-class condition is defined as:
So, we don’t mean first class as in covering your common property in gold, we simply mean it is in good, hygienic condition to be enjoyed by all owners.
The BCCM Act requires Common Property to be maintained to a good standard.
Failure to maintain your common property to a satisfactory standard may decrease the value of your investment when you come to sell your lot. If buyers inspect the property and see the common area and facilities are in poor in condition, prospective buyers will not see the property to its full potential and it will decrease the value of your property.
