So let`s see what this Strata manager did. Elevators and the renovation and modernization of escalators are one of the most important expense items ordered by the owners in teams. However, this work is excluded from the consumer protection provisions of the Home Building Act (NSW) 1989. This requires team leaders and executive committees to be particularly vigilant to protect the interests of owners when concluding elevator contracts.

You need to look at the software your proposed strata manager uses on their customer portal and how it can be manipulated to produce meaningful and easy-to-find information for owners.

The first thing I would do is contact a few other strata managers and ask them to make a tender for the role (and you could start with our Strata Choice sponsors). After the agency contract is signed by the committee members, who is entitled to have a copy of the agreement in addition to the program secretary? Secondly, in NSW, the initial duration of all strata management agreements is one year and only begins when the management contract is signed at the first general meeting. Although the developers employ strata manager to set up all the statutes and other documents for the program, the long-term contracts agreed before the first general meeting are null and void….
