Many more city dwellers are now living in apartments. Apartments have their benefits but also can come with a whole host of issues and not just issues associated with living very close to your neighbours. There can be many problems with the Owners Corporation and/or the Managing Agent such as not functioning well or it could be picking on certain owners for various matters. It may be that essential repair work to the Common Property is not being done or that tenanted units are noisy or disruptive. Then there are the concerns associated with living in close proximity to other people who do not always share your lifestyle priorities.

Issues of financial ‘contribution’ to works across more than one strata plan that share facilities in a fair and equitable manner can also be complicated, especially where the relevant committee is “dominated” by individuals with overbearing personalities and agendas. Our knowledge of strata laws as they relate to management and decision making regarding the affairs of the Owner’s Corporation or executive committee, will assist you to navigate a solution or take action to bring the relevant parties to account.

Our team of experienced lawyers have dealt with all of these issues over many years. There are solutions. We are experienced with negotiating with other parties in the first instance, but if that does not work out, then we have other methods in our repertoire all the way up to and including applications to the Strata Disputes Division of NCAT.

You can only be patience for so long, so if you have an issue that does not seem to be resolving and nothing seems to make any difference, consult our team and we can show you how things can move and change for the better.
