I'm doing some research on a structurally questionable unit that is owned by the Dep. of Housing. The engineering report shows some very serious structural issues mainly due to a damaged sewer pipe caused by tree roots (since cut down). To make matters worse, the body corporate report implied there is a good chance there probably is asbestos in this building too. Works need to be done within 5 years according to structural report or else property won't be habitable. My question is: Would I be up for all the work as the potential future owner or would the body corporate be liable for the cost considering that most of this is external and in common areas?
