Residents of the Mascot Towers in Sydney are furious after learning that they may not be able to return to the crumbling building.
The company's owner-disclosed engineers have received documents from the local council and investigations are continuing with no adequate report still available.
& # 39; A return to the occupancy rate in the short term is unlikely at this stage. This will be assessed from month to month, & the company said in a press release on Thursday.
Mascot Towers technicians and a representative of Fair Trading NSW were scheduled to address owners at a meeting on Thursday evening.
Residents of the 132 units of the building have been forced to stay elsewhere since the cracking of the primary support structure and façade masonry led to the evacuation on 14 June.

& # 39; It makes me sick. I spoke with one nice owner yesterday, she has two days off (for) stress leave, she will be here tonight, & he said news.com.au on Thursday.
Mascot Tower timeline
14th of June:
Authorities evacuate residents of 122 apartments in the complex on Bourke Street, Mascot in southern Sydney, for security reasons.
Crisis meeting with senior construction managers, government officials and strata representatives on Saturday suggested that there were several factors at stake for cracks in construction.
Residents learn that the guarantee on the building has expired and that they have to pay the special $ 1 million tax bill for emergency repairs.
Residents attend an emergency meeting of engineers and lawyers, while apartment owners agree to pay $ 1 million to finance emergency repairs.
The costs relate to repairs to & # 39; slip joint defects & # 39 ;, emergency popping and evacuation costs.
Another resident, Fady, told the news site that he still has to get his things out of his apartment and is now considering finding a long-term place.
& # 39; We just need to know what's going to happen. Are we leaving the building for another week? Another month? Another year? That's the part that we don't know, & he said.
Engineers had requested documents dating from 2004, including detailed structural plans for Mascot Towers, and geo-technical and hydraulic reports.
The information can help to identify the cause of the problems of the 10-year-old building.
Geo-technical engineers are reviewing this site this week, an update sent to owners and residents said on Tuesday.
The pressure continues to increase to repair the building that has been found to sink.
The state government has offered help assistant packages, but residents have rejected them.
Some even consider filing for bankruptcy, according to news.com.au.
Last week, indignant residents attended a four-hour emergency meeting at the Holiday Inn at Mascot, where more than 100 apartment owners agreed to pay the special $ 1 million charge to fund disaster repairs.
Owner and resident Bill Tucker said that there was little other option than to pay the massive bill.
& # 39; There is not much choice, & # 39; owner Brian Tucker told reporters.
Two weeks ago, engineers saw cracks in the parking garage of the building that caused alarms

& # 39; It was a pretty overwhelming voice. We just want to see everyone back in the building. & # 39;
Residents first discovered that they might have to pay for the repairs after they have learned that the guarantee on their building has expired.
On Wednesday, the developer of a neighboring building again rejected speculation about their recently completed project with the problems of Mascot Towers.
Aland Developments said they had engineers make an expired report of surrounding buildings, including Mascot Towers, before the construction of Peak Towers.
& # 39; This report documents the state of the Mascot Towers building prior to the construction of Peak Towers and clearly confirms that the building had been damaged before, & # 39 ;, managing director Andrew Hrsto said in a statement.
& # 39; Aland is convinced that the ongoing research will definitively show that the structural problems with Mascot Towers have nothing to do with the construction of Peak Towers and actually date from before the start of construction with several years & # 39;
