I own an apartment in a building in QLD with 6 units in total. I've been advised that 2 of the lot owners have recently installed security cameras on the eaves of the building (the eaves above their balconies ie. common property) One points towards the road and one points towards the driveway of the building and street beyond. The BC Committee was not consulted prior to the installations - By Laws state owners cannot install any permanent fixtures, drive nails or screws into any area of Common Property without approval of the Committee first, so Body Corp has asked the lot owners to remove them. I'm wanting to know, can the Lot owners, committee or body corp manager be liable for breaches of the Surveillance Devices Act (or any other legal action) that arises from having these cameras installed without approval? Should the Committee seek independent legal advice regarding installation of security cameras on the premises IF they decide they want them? Who should control and store the footage? Are there any other issues the Committee should consider? Currently no one has access to the footage apart from the lot owners that installed the cameras.
