Apartment Defects & Maintenance

Building management is responsible for maintaining the buildings common areas. For maintenance items and defects relating to your apartment that are not common property and are covered within the warranty period please log the items in BuildingLink which will be actioned by Building Management and Richard Crookes Constructions.

Connecting Gas & Electricity

Your service provider should have a record of your gas and electricity meter numbers when you provide them your address. A list of the units and their corresponding meter numbers can be found in the BuildingLink library under meter numbers. You are free to connect to a utility provider of your choice and this must be done on taking up residency at the building. The meters are read remotely and are located in a cupboard in the building corridors that can only be accessed by building management or the meter readers.

The hot water meter to apportion your hot water consumption as a portion of the total building (given it is a central hot water system) is in most instances located under the laundry basin

No Electricity

If there is no electricity in your apartment, or part of your apartment, most likely a circuit breaker has tripped. There is a switchboard in the apartment that contains all circuit breakers, it is usually located in a storage cupboard or your kitchen.

As a short has most likely tripped the breaker it is best to turn off all power outlets, appliances and lights, go to your switchboard and then reset the circuit breaker by turning it back to on. If you turn a light or use a power point and the breaker trips again, this is the cause of the short and the appliance should not be used further or an electrician should be called.

Should there be no electricity in your apartment and no breakers are tripped, please contact building management, unless it is an issue with the area in which case you will need to wait for power to be reinstated.

Phone & Internet

The building is wired to the National Broadband Network (NBN) providing high speed internet to your apartment. When occupying the apartment you are free to use a telecommunications provider of your choice to set up your telephone and internet. Providers should be able to set up your connection without accessing the building, however if for some reason they require access to the buildings Main Distribution Frame (MDF) please contact building management.

Each apartment has a distribution board usually located in the linen or broom cupboard. Your telecommunications provider will provide a phone/internet service to this distribution board, you may need to connect the line for your wall outlets to the distribution board to obtain a service at the wall outlet.

All items must be stored in the designated storage cage, we also suggest that items in storage cages be elevated as there can be water through the car park at times during cleaning or in the event of a plumbing issue.

Water & Hot Water

The cost of water is paid for by your strata levies and an access charge that will be billed to you by Sydney Water; you should confirm that Sydney Water has your correct contact details.

Individual stop valves to turn on/off the hot and cold water to your apartment can generally be found under the basin in your laundry.
