    Hello,

    I own a townhouse in a small complex (NSW). One of the neighbours has a large (3m tall) self-planted weed (Lantana) in his courtyard. The courtyard can be accessed only via the unit. Our strata manager says it is the Strata's responsibility to pay for the removal. I am not convinced. What are the rules in regards to responsibilities of owners vs strata in small complexes?

    Many thanks in advance

    Thank you David. It is a private courtyard. I doubt it should be treated as common property. Will clarify with the strata manager once again.
