Services for Owners and Committees

 

We provide a range of services to owners and body corporates. Whilst our contract details specific duties such as those below, in practice we provide much more.

We are usually the first port of call for questions from owners, from discussing levy payment options to understanding body corporate vs owner responsibility in relation to maintenance or insurance. Our committees also take advantage of our experience and knowledge to explore options for a variety of different issues, including by-law enforcement, financing maintenance or repairs and meeting operations. There is often more than one way to achieve an outcome, and the legislation does not make it easy to see all of the options. Our experience can help. 

We are also happy to discuss how we can tailor our service to suit your particular complex. Contact us to discuss the various ways we can assist you. Any owner is free to contact us to discuss our service, you do not have to be on the committee. There is no harm in asking for information, the worst case scenario is you have spent 15 minutes on the phone.
