Geyser move into common property duct

By Warren Fialkov on Thu, 22 Mar 2012 at 12:27

I would like to know if it is permissable to install a geyser in a common property service duct.
Q1 - I understand I require 50% Body Corporate to agree to my utilisation of common property - correct?
Q2 - Is a geyser allowed to be installed in a service duct (which is accessed from my section)?
Q3 - Where can I find references to the act/section that governs the common property usage?

I have spoken with insurer and provided geyser is installed in compliance with SANS10254 there is no impact to insurance policy.

There is a service duct between my flat and my neighbours. Access is from my flat.
There already is a ventilation duct running from the unit below to the 5th floor within the duct.
My flat is a 1st floor flat (1 unit below)

My family and I have steayd a lot at Port Orleans Riverside and always enjoyed it. Very clean rooms, staff is excellent and everyone goes out of their way to make your stay magical! Just a word of caution. If the weather turns back or they see lightning , they will close the pools, as a safety measure. Love the food court. Lots of choices and the pizza is great. Can't go wrong with this resort. Lots of value for the money.
