I am living in apartment block, on ground floor with courtyard and there is a gazebo in my courtyard. At the moment there are building repairs carry out by the strata using their contractors and they are currently repairing the roof. So on the weekend I found out there are a lot of dirt on my courtyard due to the repairs on the roof (this I don’t really mind since it is easy to clean), there are two holes on the tent of my gazebo from cigarette butts and also a big bucket fell causing the gazebo’s roof frame to bend. The bucket has cement all over it. I have contacted the strata to let them know about this incident and also asked them inform the contractor that I want the damages to be repaired. The strata came back to me and said that the contractor claims that none of their staff smoke but did not say anything about the bucket that fell. They are only willing to send someone to clean up the dirt that fell into the courtyard. So I emailed the strata back asking what about the bucket since it has cement all over it and the strata only replied they will ask the contractor to email me. So in a way they are saying, it is between you and the contractor now, it is not our problem anymore. I know that it is hard to find out who threw the ciggie buts however the bucket is indeed a smoking gun since it has cement all over it. Anyone had ever experience similar issue and what is the best way to deal with this? Pictures attached.
