Residents of Sydney & # 39; s Mascot Towers have voted to pay $ 7 million of their own money to repair the building, just as it is revealed that they will not return to their homes until next year.

Apartment owners in the tower block were evacuated in mid-June due to cracks in the primary structure and façade masonry and have since lived in temporary accommodation.

Nearly 300 residents were evacuated from the Bourke Street building due to security risks on June 14.

Although many residents were eager to return to their homes, it has been found that it is unlikely that they will return before the end of the year.

Residents were also informed that the repair bill for the remediation work could be nearly $ 20 million, which corresponds to about $ 150,000 per unit.

Residents were told on Thursday that the NSW government had agreed to extend the rental assistance for displaced persons until at least March 2020, depending on an agreed financing deed.

Better Regulation Minister Kevin Anderson said the government appreciates & # 39; the owners of distress & # 39 ;.

& # 39; The decision was made after a meeting between the building commissioner, the strata manager, the building manager and the engineers that led to a more focused line of research into the cause of the problems facing the buildings & # 39 ;, said he in a statement.

The residents also adopted a motion to pay a $ 7 million plus GST levy, rather than previously estimated at $ 10 million, including an emergency fund of 30 percent.

& # 39; I'm standing here as a parent … my daughter asked me: & # 39; When can I go home? & # 39; said Mr. Vital.

& # 39; This has caused a lot of trauma in the last two months because we have been evacuated, the reason why we do not know. & # 39;
