Roof damage by owner

By Riekie Prinsloo on Tue, 06 Nov 2018 at 20:51

Just after moving in, one of the owners made alterations to her unit's roof without consulting or the consent of the BC. The alterations consist of cutting the roof tiles to widen the gaps between them in the valleys. As a result of this it is much easier for the rainwater to over spill on the ceilings, which now resulted in water damage to the ceilings. Some of the tiles are now so small that they have become loose as they were no longer attached to the brandering. After 3 years she insists that the BC must repair the tiles and accuses the BC of neglecting to maintain the roofs.
Can we force her to pay for the repairs herself?
Can she claim from the BC's insurance seeing that she caused the damage herself?
