FAQs - Why is the strata report for a unit, townhouse or villa not adequate?

A. Most defects are not typically identified in strata reports and it is advisable to have individual reports carried out for each unit or townhouse/ villa. Defects commonly found in these buildings for example include; rising and lateral damp, concrete cancer, replacement of flooring and or roofing members due to timber pest damage, replacement of roof coverings and defective tiling to wet areas and balconies (including waterproofing repairs to wet areas, car parks and planter boxes) all of which can be significant costs and a nasty surprise if not budgeted for. These types of defects typically found in one unit will most likely be throughout the complex and should be identified and in most cases repaired as a matter of urgency to prevent further costs or possible serious injury.
