Validation of minor amenity features on common parts of a building

If the unauthorised minor amenity features are erected at the exterior or other common parts of the building, the person who arranged for the inspection should liaise with the owners concerned or the co-owners of the building/owners' corporation/the management company regarding the right of use of such exterior or common parts, especially before the commencement of strengthening works, and to observe all obligations as stipulated in the deed of mutual covenant of the building.

The obligations include but not limited to the arrangement of third party liability insurance.

Failing to obtain the consent from the owner concerned or the co-owners of the building/owners' corporation/the management company may lead to a breach of the deed of mutual covenant of the building and the owners of the unauthorised minor amenity features may be liable to civil proceedings and bearing of civil liabilities.
