I just wondered what my rights are as a lot owner regarding strata rolls. I requested a copy of strata rolls via email from our strata manager.
At first, his answer was: “Only the committee can request such a document or you can hire a strata search company to obtain this.”
To that I insisted, citing Section 182 of the SSMA.
And his reply:”Incorrect, it clearly states that this is to be reviewed under inspection only. Meaning you will need to pay the office $34.10 per hour and you will need to be In Office. You cannot obtain a copy of the strata roll which contains private information. Again, you can search the records or hire a company”
So I’ll have to pay a visit to his office. I’m just trying to think of possible scenarios where the strata manager tries to keep me from obtaining copies while I’m there. He’ll probably hand me a big pile of old rubbish records to screw with me. I can pay him $34.10, but he said $34.10 per hour, is that legitimate? While I’m there, I might check some other records. The manager has a history of giving me false facts. I just cannot trust anything he says.
When he said, “You cannot obtain a copy of the strata roll which contains private information”, so did he mean I cannot make a photocopy or take photos with my phone?
Do I have the right to make a photocopy or take photos? Or write down other owners’ contact details, like correspondence address, phone number, email address, etc?
What about other records? Do I have the right to make photocopies or take photos with my phone?
