I have read through the book and on page 102 under the handy tip that it tells the variance of boundary of the unit is defined in each States as below:
NSW, SA, WA and Northern Territory – inner surface of that unit, be it floor, roof or fence
VIC, QLD, Tasmania and the ACT – Centre of the tructure of the boundary, floor, ceiling, roof or fence
Could you please give more clear indication on this as it seems not much different in above areas.
And in addition, I googled it to see fence whether belongs lot responsibility or body corp responsibility and found the below:
A boundary fence is a fence that is used to separate the scheme land from non-scheme land. Further, in this case “fence” doesn’t just mean fence but can include retaining walls or even structures. Each case is individual and it will depend on whether the structure or wall forms part of the fence.
Boundary fences are the responsibility of the land owner. In the case of a strata scheme that would mean the collective land owners, or the body corporate, is responsible for maintaining and / or replacing the boundary fences.
So could you please clarify whether the fence if it is boundary for the unit or common property?
Look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance for your help.
Ch3.2 is about strata Title and Community Title. The textbook states that each state has some slight differences, but we will examine the basic concepts.
However, the key words is inner surfaces and centre of the structure have differentiated the responsibilities of individual (units) owners and Strata Corporations.
