We recently bought the top level of a block of seven and became involved in the Owners Corporation after discovering the strata was “self managed” by an owner who lives offshore.
We resolved this within months and held an EGM to appoint external strata manager.
One of the first tasks of the manager was to ensure fire inspections were being done as per the law but also to ensure we compared the market to get the best possible relationship and to ensure this was not “set and forget”.
The newly-appointed inspectors have come back with a report showing the building (built in the 1930s) is non-compliant in a number of areas which is concerning.
If the previous inspectors did not highlight the non-compliant issues, what recourse do we have in asking for a “please explain” – given the new owners in the building are now up for costs that previous owners might not have been aware of or attended to?
Many thanks to all and for Jimmy for this terrific forum.
