    Default Body Corp Question

    Hi,

    Hoping someone on the forum may be able to help with a body Corp question?

    I own a townhouse and my air conditioner has died and I need to get a replacement. I know there is an expectation to gain body Corp approval before installation of an air conditioner. I had always thought it was to do with aesthetics and that it wasn't too noisy etc. What I'm not sure about is, is approval required for insurance purposes?

    I was hoping that because I'd just be replacing what I have with a newer model, I could avoid the whole approval process and get it done quickly as I'm sweating here lol! But a bit worried if there are insurance implications if I don't.

    Anyone have any knowledge on this?

    Thank you

    If you're replacing an old unit for a new unit that would obviously be more noise efficient then i don't believe you need approval. We replaced our old unit in our old apartment and we didn't get approval as we were using all the down pipes/ducting etc that was already there.

    You should also have a copy of your body corporate rules which should say if you have to ask.

    I'm a pretty slack townhouse dweller. I have no copy of the body Corp rules, just a basic awareness of the obvious rules such as no parking on the grass, no child on skateboards etc lol.
