Who is responsible for replacing washers, specifically isolation taps? – Robyn, NSW

Answer: Hi Simone, the answer you seek depends on where the washer and taps are located in the building. If washers and taps are communal, the owners corporation would be responsible. The owners corporation may also be responsible if the tap is located in your apartment and built into or behind a common property wall. When a washing machine is located within a unit, it is often the lot owner’s responsibility and this is the same case with the tap if it’s located on the lot owner’s wall.
