Can I Paint My Door Bright Red?

Sunday, 01st February 2015

Working so closely with lot owners, you totally understand the enormity of information that needs to get to lot owners across New South Wales.

It is not just about the executive committee members, each and every lot owner needs the knowledge presented to them in a way that is easy to understand.  We talk to lot owners every day at Stratalive and there is a constant stream of concerns from owners who have unknowingly done the wrong thing.  

You hear it in the Stratalive forum all the time.  We feel for the young man who, as a romantic gesture, decided to paint the front door of his unit his wife’s favourite colour as a Valentine’s Day present.  When his wife left to work a night shift at the local hospital, he stayed up all night painting the door bright red and finishing it with a big brass knocker.

She was not the only one who got a surprise the next morning. The neighbours had quite a lot to say about it as well.  Unaware that the front door of an apartment is common property the young couple was surprised when the owners corporation requested they return it to its original condition and colour.

These poor kids who had bought their first apartment had no idea they couldn’t paint the front door to their own apartment.

And that is just one example of the many unintentional breaches we deal with on a day-to-day basis.

Stratalive is now working a lot more closely with Strata Community Australia (NSW) and NSW Fair Trading to ensure we get the information to you. 

Strata managers and strata lawyers are also jumping on board to help you through the process.  You can go onto the Stratalive forum and ask any question you need answered and someone will be there to help you through it.

One person rang recently to say they preferred not to go on the forum because they didn’t want to appear to be asking an ignorant question.  There really is no such thing.  What you don’t know, you need to know, so ask the question.

We are currently updating the website but the forum is still open and experts are waiting to help you. 

So just head to and ask any question. Why not use the search bar at the top of the forum first to see if your question has already been asked and answered.

You can also contact at any time at [email protected] or give us a call at (02) 9627 1627.

Clip on extensions are also advised if you've got damaged, brittle hair that easily break, as such extensions cause less damage.
