STRATA TITLES ACT 1985 - SECT 54A

54A .         Where insurance cover refused, proprietor may be required to take action

        (1)         A proprietor of a lot in a scheme shall ensure that the lot is not used for an activity if the proprietor has been notified in writing by the strata company for the scheme that the strata company cannot obtain insurance cover for the building, or part of it, on reasonable terms because that activity is being carried on on the lot.

        (2)         The proprietor of a lot in a scheme shall comply with a notice given to the proprietor by the strata company for the scheme to carry out any work on the building on the lot, being work specified in the notice, if the notice is expressed to be given on the grounds that the strata company cannot obtain insurance cover for the building on reasonable terms until that work has been carried out.

        (3)         A proprietor may, instead of complying with subsection (1) or (2), pay a part of the premium for insurance cover if the strata company is satisfied that the amount of premium remaining to be paid by the company is an amount that the company should reasonably pay for that insurance cover.

        (4)         A proprietor may, instead of complying with subsection (2), take any other step that enables insurance cover on the building to be obtained on reasonable terms.

        (5)         The obligations created by this section are enforceable under section 103K.

        [Section 54A inserted: No. 58 of 1995 s. 53.]
