Does strata cover plumbing?
Generally, everything inside the unit is the owner’s responsibility, with common areas covered by the strata. However – it is always worth checking your strata agreement as it may differ from the usual.
Some of the following common plumbing issues can be grey areas when it comes to who is responsible for the solution:
- Blocked drains – the location of the blockage will determine whether the strata is responsible. Sinks and tub drains are usually the owner’s jurisdiction, whereas shower and floor drains may be strata responsibilities as other units often share the same drain.
- Burst pipes – again location plays a part here as it depends if the pipe caters to a single unit or multiple. Usually, water damage mould or mildew will be the responsibility of the unit owner.
- Leaking fixtures and taps – this is general wear and tear and therefore is usually the owner’s problem to resolve.
- Leaking balconies – if a balcony above is leaking, it may be a strata plumbing responsibility if the cause is a blocked or burst pipe. It’s worth checking if the problem stems from a neighbour watering plants as a simple chat could solve the issue.
