Sectional title corner – What do I do if the approved plans have deviated?
Hi, I have met all prerequisites for extending onto common property and have received a go ahead at a special general meeting (SGM).
My builder has changed the height of a wall from 1.5m to 1.7m which would change the pitch of the roof resulting in a difference between plans submitted at the SGM and the deviated plans once drawn up.
Would I need to resubmit the deviated plans to all unit owners asking for permission to change from the original plans? To fix his blunder. – Zaheer
Hi Zaheer, you will have to go back to the body corporate as this is not what it approved. The owners approved plan A, the builder deviated from this and built plan B. You now have to go back the owners/body corporate to get approval for plan B.
If they do not approve it you will have to break it down and build what was approved on plan A.
