In relation to Units Plan 928, known as the Georgetown Apartments and correspondence received by various Ministers from one of the unit owners in Units Plan 928 who is concerned about what appears to be illegal structures in the roof space of unit 4:

(2) Is the space common property or does it form part of unit 4;

(3) If it is common property, to what purpose can it be applied by the Body Corporate;

(4) Is it necessary for a Body Corporate to unanimously agree to modifications to the units plan;

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

(1) This issue was an internal matter between the Body Corporate (now referred to as an Owners Corporation) and the unit owner.
