I'm a renter on level 1 of an apartment block. Someone drove into the communal (street facing) garage's door, causing the thing to fall apart. This has left the carpark, and the building unsecure, as anyone has access to the elevator. The accident occurred over 4 weeks ago, and the strata company said that they are waiting on the owner's committee to come to a decision (we aren't told who's on the owners committee as we rent here), and have taken zero action to secure the premises.
Earlier this week, someone's bicycle was stolen from the car park. Last night / this morning, someone stole the number plates off my car.
I have informed the police about this, and left a message with the strata committee. I'm on good terms with the owner of this apartment and I spoke to him, and he said he will also speak to the strata company about this, but he is unsure what can be done.
The plates were from interstate, so I'm arranging a replacement (I drive back and forth between the states fairly regularly, but I can't drive with no plates, so sorting it out at the moment).
I'm lost with what to do from here. Is it possible for me to get compensation from strata for the issue that they've caused me?
The building is still unsecured, and I'm unsure how long it will take before they fix the issue. Is the strata liable to provide some sort of action to secure the premises (CCTV, IP camera, security guard)?
