Hi there,

Property of 10 units (WA) which have exclusive use rights for their garden & carport areas.

We have had a termite inspection of the properties & activity was detected in some exclusive use areas. Regarding the responsibilities of owners for these areas [ Strata Titles Act 1985 – WA, Exclusive Use 42 (8) & 42 (11 - b) 'is unless excused by the by‑law, responsible for the performance of the duty of the strata company under section 35(1)(c) in respect of the common property, or the part of the common property, to which the by‑law relates.'] are these owners now responsible for the treatment costs of their respective areas?

Hmmm - Maybe next time I need a lawyer I'll try the local pest controller instead. I had no idea they studied law.
