Think you need an owners corporation manager for your strata property, but not sure how to appoint one? There are laws regarding who can be appointed.
The owners corporation is responsible for the major decisions that are made in your strata building, but what about the day-to-day operations? When disputes arise or quick decisions need to be made about maintenance, who takes the responsibility?
An owners corporation manager can be appointed within your strata to look after some or all of the functions of the owners corporation. However, the person must meet some requirements – it can’t just be a regular member of the committee. If the operations of your strata property have been neglected because your owners corporation doesn’t meet regularly, it might be worthwhile appointing a manager to maintain the building.
Who can be an Owners Corporation Manager?
In order to be eligible, a person must hold a license to provide services as the manager of an owners corporation under the Agents Act 2001. You can also appoint a firm with the necessary license. The appointed person must either be a member of the owners’ corporation only provide management services to one owners corporation (yours) and not earn their primary income from the management.
Appointing an owners corporation manager is done in the same way as any decisions are made at committee meetings, and requires an ordinary resolution.
