Sectional title corner – Who is responsible for fixing a tampered electricity meter?

Q

Hi, I have recently found out that my tenant has tampered with the electricity meter box. How do I go about handling this matter?

A

The electricity meter is common property. The body corporate will, therefore, have to fix it, but they can claim back the cost from the owner.
