My car was broken into last night. It was parked in our underground, secure parkade. Nothing was stolen except the key fob that opens the parkade door (it doesn't open any other doors).
Cost to reprogram all the fobs to a different frequency (so the stolen fob cannot open the parkade door): $1500 (+ $100 for me to buy a new fob).
Strata manager is saying that because I had the fob in my car this is my fault and I am liable for the $1500. However, there is nothing in the by-laws about not keeping fobs in cars and I was never given this information.
I obviously don't mind paying $100 for a new fob but it seems unfair I should be on the hook for the $1500.
Can I fight this?
