      Good evening

      Asking on behalf of a friend.

      Can my friend act on behalf of his recently deceased brother on strata matters (correspondence from strata manager and OC) until the deceased wife and family have got themselves back on their feet? The deceased owner had handled all things strata so family needs to be “taught” the details (AGMs, levies, notices etc).

      Cheers

        Did the deceased use email?

        Does the wife or brother know the password?

        Is the property jointly owned by the wife and the deceased?

        If “yes” to all three, why not continue to use that email account and have the brother sign off his emails with the wife’s name?

        Make clear in the first email to the strata manager that following the passing of her husband, the wife will now do the correspondence. For simplicity, inform the strata manager and committee members that the family will keep the deceased email address.

        Just my 2 cents.

          Make clear in the first email to the strata manager that following the passing of her husband, the wife will now do the correspondence.

          I wouldn’t even do that.  Just keep on top of the email traffic and pay the bills when they come in.  It’s not as if they’ll be committing any major frauds.
