Q: Hey, I am currently looking to buy an apartment at Bankstown but the property does not have a storage or garage but it was a huge backyard that is not a common area and belong to the unit about 4.6x11.4. My question is can I place a workshop shade for a storage or what's the process or the chances that it will be rejected. The shed will be one of the prebuild ones like the ones that you can buy from Bunnings and not construction work will be done. Currently at the backyard exist a Colorbond fence and the shed will not be visible from outside but it will be visible from out side but it will be visible from the people living above . I will appreciate if you can give me some information on this matter because depending on the answer it can be no deal for me.

A: Generally speaking, if the area is for the owner’s exclusive use and the shed structure is a pop-up which requires no structural changes/construction into the backyard it may be easily approved/not require approval.
When it comes to renovations that are cosmetic in nature, you will not need to have committee approval. Cosmetic works are superficial changes to the look and feel of your property, such as painting interior walls, or installing handrails. While making cosmetic renovations within your property, keep in mind that you would be responsible for any damage to common property as a result of the renovations.
