Leak in condo

Hey guys, first off, I am not looking for legal advice I just wanted to see if anyone else has had experience similar to mine and won't mind sharing.

1. Leak in condo--strata sent people to cut a hole in my ceiling to find cause
2. Report found leak caused by exterior leak (improper installation of ingress)
3. Strata fixes the exterior leak
4. Strata does not want to pay to repair my ceiling

Question is, who is suppose to pay to fix my ceiling??

Thanks guys, any help is appreciated!

Strata is supposed to pay your ceiling.

Is this a joke?

Any exploratory work contracted by strata should be covered. As soon as the leak was discovered, you should have had your ceiling fixed.

Well they should fix the hole they cut.

The water damage is caused by the building itself, thus strata should cover the repairs.

If the unit above left their tub running and it overflowed and damaged your unit, are you going to pay to repair the water damage?

Strata pays.....well technically you're paying through your monthly strata fees. Tell them to suck it.

The strata claims I am responsible for my own unit including the ceiling.

Was your ceiling damaged because a guy came and cut a hole in it to investigate a building issue that has nothing to do with your unit? In other words, if not for the guy cutting a hole, your unit has nothing to do with this?

For example, last year the strata had to fix some plumbing in our building as part of some maintenance they were doing and it involved coming into my unit, removing my toilet, snaking the pipes, then reinstalling the toilet. They covered 100%. They didn't take my toilet out, do the repairs, then make me cover the cost of fixing everything.

Instead, tt sounds like what is happening is your strata believes the ceiling was (either directly or indirectly) damaged due to the exterior leak. In that case, even though the leak wasn't your fault, under the bylaws they are only responsible for fixing the leak, you are responsible for fixing any damage inside your unit (including the ceiling) that was caused by the the leak, which they are probably including the hole cut by the guy as one and the same. It's a bit of a stretch if you ask me. Bunch of crooks.

If the building envelope caused the leak within the unit though, that's pretty cut and dry as to damage cause in this unit due to a problem within the structure that the strata is responsible for

I'm interested in finding out how this plays out. Eff-1 and Hondaracer both have opposite opinions on this. So is this cut and dry, strata pays or is the OP SOL?

according to the standard strata bylaws, any damages caused inside the unit, like water damaged ceilings, carpet replacments, etc (even though it was from the leak in the building envelope) are still the owner's responsibility. the location of the source of the leak doesn't matter.

it's stupid, but that's the way it is.

I've had a similar situation happen twice when I owned my townhouse, strata fixed the leak and my ceiling both times.

If they want you to pay for damage caused by exterior problems, that's a shitty ass strata.

Yea..basically if they used your unit as investigation you would think they would just act on good will in repairing whatever happened within your unit..

Makes me appreciate my strata even more, we live in a 25 year old high rise but the strata is amazing

I read from another source and agree to it. However, the owner can still sue the source of problem (plumbing in the wall/ceiling = strata, upstairs dishwasher = neighbor upstairs)

This is a decent source regarding bylaws and issues like these.

Unfortunately eff-1 is correct and the bylaws do state the strata lot damage is the responsibility of the owner.

Unless your building has its own amendments that state otherwise, you may be SOL.
