So if you own the whole building, you are the body corporate and will be responsible for such costs?
Scott No Mates: is there a circumstance where the tenants would be required to contribute to the upkeep of common areas which would be detailed in the lease? Using the above example of a small office block. Support the driveway to the car park needed resurfacing. Would it be a possibility that these costs would be chargeable to the tenants under the lease they have signed?
In some cases a net lease will require contributions to repairs and maintenance but in all cases excluding replacement, structural repair or upgrades. Eg. Repairs to leaking fittings, air conditioning service etc.
