Question: Is the Owners Corporation responsible for emergency lighting fitting maintenance on my unit lot?

Currently, my Owners Corporation claim that they are not responsible for emergency lighting fitting maintenance on my unit lot which is located in an apartment building. Does the ruling of Fair Trading NSW, Owner Corporation are being responsible for the maintenance of light fitting which recesses into the ceiling, applied in Victoria?

Answer: You must first determine if your plan of subdivision states that the emergency lighting fitting in your apartment forms part of the common property.

In Victoria, the Owners Corporations Act 2006 (Act) provides that the owners corporation is responsibility to repair and maintain the common property. In that regard, you must first determine if your plan of subdivision states that the emergency lighting fitting in your apartment forms part of the common property. If it is, then the Owners Corporation is definitely required to repair and maintain it according to the Act.
