I had the unfortunate and very upsetting experience to attend the AGM of my friends strata. Firstly the strata manager could not get the equipment to work and we watched 15 minutes of bungling whilst she tried to get it to work.
I wonder if she will charge the SP for that time.
There were about 10 people in the room and about 5 people virtually. Because the equipment was not working the virtual people could not see or interact with the people in the room. Only the SM could see the questions they were sending through and she did not pass this information on to the room.
Half the room wanted to switch strata managers and the other half didn’t. When the motion for change of strata came up for discussion the Chairman asked her to leave the room whilst the meeting discussed the matter. The SM refused. She was then asked to remain silent whilst they discussed the matter. She kept interjecting. One of the Owners behind me kept asking her not to be so rude, and she really was very rude.
Evidence was provided where she had paid invoices without authority.
Evidence was provided where work was noted on the financial documents under electrical repairs when the invoice was paid to a committee member without approval and had nothing to do with electrical repairs.
Evidence was provided where the SM wanted to repair an owners shower at OC expense – this was not an original bathroom.
More evidence was provided where NSW Fair Trading had identified failures in two of the strata companies procedures.
Accusations were made that the SM ingratiates herself with the SC in order to keep her job.
The meeting was in total disarray with people shouting over the top of others.
This meeting was a shambles and makes me feel sick to the core. Right was not the winner – the bullies were.
Any ideas how this meeting could have been held more responsibly? This is so wrong.
