What is "responsibility?"

Your responsibility in a flatted building doesn't just extend to paying for common repairs.

If you are responsible for maintaining a part of a building you are required to:

  • Keep it in good order so as not to cause damage to neighbours property and to provide support and shelter for the building as a whole.  This applies to items which are individual responsibility as well as mutual or common elements of the building.
  • Pay your share of common costs
