I own a sectional title unit and have suffered damages to my interior walls as a result of serious damp issues.
When I purchased the unit more than a decade ago I became aware of the damp problem which is caused by water seeping in from the roof and exterior walls.
When the roof and walls were repaired two years ago, myself and other unit owners submitted claims to the insurance of the body corporate for the interior damage. But the insurance company then rejected these claims on the basis that they formed part of an ongoing insurance issue. They couldn’t provide any further explanation on this.
Do I actually have a claim against the body corporate for the interior repair costs? It is to my understanding that the exterior of a unit falls within the scope of authority of the body corporate.
