    True - but the implication from DBTH was that it needed filling in for every tenant change and that is untrue and overstating the impact.

    Yes, well people get a bit shitty about this sort of bureaucratic BS.

    I've done mine now. Maybe 2 hours of my time to a) Find the specs on the plans, along with the signoff form from the council, and b) Get ahold of a sample statement (Thanks Bob and DBTH), fill it in and get it to the property manager.

    And it was just to say the insulation that is there is fine.

    And of course, owner-occupiers are still entirely left out of all of this.

    There's 100,000 homes that can not have insulation - and many are the lockwoods - we have one - a concrete base and cathedral ceilings. So there's nothing to be done about that.

    cheers,

    Yes I have a unit that has a concrete floor, concrete block walls and concrete stippled ceiling (with another unit above). There is not much I can do about that one at all. I could probably install a false ceiling and then pump in dry blown insulation but with all other surfaces being concrete I am not sure it would make that much difference.

    I have another unit in a different building which is on the first floor, with allocated car parking for multiple units directly underneath. While the underside of that concrete floor is technically accessible, the jury is out on whether I can install foam type insulation there. From a legal standpoint, the owners of those parking spaces also own the 'ceiling' above their spaces (the underside of my floor). Investigations continue on that one....

    I wouldn't have thought the insulation regs would have applied to a multi-story unit complex.
    Just fill out the form saying you can't insulate below or above your unit and file it away.
    Job done.
