1. New Buyers/Lot Owners Within A Body Corporate

If you presently own or looking to buy within a strata titled development for the first time, identifying a good investment is key! What components are critical to investing well? The first step for any astute buyer is to gain a clear understanding of your asset. In the context of a body corporate, this may mean acquiring an understanding of how body corporate budgets and annual levy contributions are determined? Acquiring an understanding of where Lot Owner versus Body Corporate building compliance or maintenance responsibilities start and end? Understanding the role of the Body Corporate Manager, Property Manager, Building Manager and/or External Letting Agent and yes, there is a big difference!

Whether you’re looking to buy within a small to medium size townhouse development or multi-storey, high-rise residential tower, possessing an understanding of caretaker/body corporate committee, day-to-day, building management requirements, body corporate financial management responsibilities, duties and functions is essential! You may also be considering nominating for a (voting) position on your body corporate committee but have no real idea where to start! Don’t wait any longer!

What others have to say:

“I had no clear picture of who was responsible for what; strata management, the building manager, or owners (committee); this training provided very clear advice and I was shocked to find out how much I did not know. The training was provided in a friendly and interactive environment. Stephanie was an excellent presenter and was most helpful in addressing issues specific to my building. I would encourage any stakeholders in building management (and from my perspective particularly committee members) to attend the training.”

– John Nibbs Lot Owner/Executive Committee Member
