I have lived in my townhouse for almost a year, which is inside a large open complex with a 12 standalone townhouses and communal carport/carpark.
Prior to buying the place, the executive committee and the body corporate had organised and funded to install a large security gate around the complex – which is opened by a small hand held remote control that each owner has.
The issue is that my unit, is behind the security gate. There is no intercomm system at all and visitors are forced to either resort to using mobiles, or waiting and hoping someone opens the gate by chance. Visitors can not physically knock on my door.
Three of the executive members live in units who’s front doors are street facing and not fenced off. A forth member rents theirs out and a fifth doesn’t seem to mind not having visotrs. We find the biggest issue is unexpected visitors, or visitors who does not have our phone number. I have since become an executive member, however my complaints and inconveniences go uncared for.
The owners corporation see to shrug off requests and complaints of this. I have read through the unit titles act and been unable to find anything. Is there a law that prevents visitor access to my front door? Is there a governing body that I can enquire to?
