      Hi guys,

      This might be a bit of an obscure question, however we have a company that visits at least annually to do inspections and they stick numerous stickers advertising their company everywhere. There’s multiple stickers on each unit’s door frame. There’s stickers next to the fire hydrants, on the ceiling, walls, etc.

      It is the common area so I guess they think no-one will care but I do. I think it looks tacky and can potentially ruin paintwork if you want to peal these off. It appears that they will continue to stick stickers on every visit too so it’s becoming a joke.

      Does anyone know whether these tradespeople require permission from the strata management co. and/or owners’ corp. before going around advertising and sticking their logo everywhere?

      What’s worse is that I want to change companies as they don’t appear to be doing the bare minimum of their duties, so why should we keep paying them and I don’t need to be reminded of them everywhere i look in the common area.

        You haven’t specified what these ‘inspections’ are for. Nevertheless, if you are on the SC, call a meeting and pass a resolution for the SM to write to the company forbidding them from placing stickers on common property. If your strata building is fairly casual in its management practices, then send the SM an email yourself to do it, or if they are non-co-operative, then send an email to the company yourself requesting they refrain from placing stickers in the building.

        While you might find peeling the stickers off yourself to be a nuisance, doing so will temporarily stop the practice and give you piece of mind until you can post an item on the AGM or SC agenda for the next meeting arising to change companies.

          If the stickers are to show the inspection status of whatever they’re stuck to, removing them might not be a good idea.

            Yup, but you can instruct the service providers to remove th old sticker before they replace the new one.
