Hi I have a townhouse in Canberra that has developed a leak near my water mains stopcock. The body corporate said it’s my responsibility to fix.
I had my plumber look at it and it is not the stopcock that is leaking it is the pipe on the mains side of the stopcock that has a leak in it. That pipe comes from the complex water supply to my unit and is located in front of my garage door in the ground.
My question is where along the water pipe does my responsibility for repairs start and stop?
I would have thought that body corporate was responsible for the water supply up to and including the stopcock. Now they are saying that as that pipe and stopcock only service my unit then I am responsible.
