When you buy a lot in a residential development, you become part of an owners corporation.
What is an owners corporation?
An owners corporation administers to the needs of property owners by handling duties related to common property.
The term “common property” refers to any portions of a property that aren’t lots on the plan of subdivision. This includes interior and exterior spaces such as lifts, stairs, hallways, entryways, pathways, and driveways as well as interior and exterior features such as walls, gardens, lights and amenities. Common property is jointly owned by lot owners.

Benefits offered by Melcorp Strata
A quality owners corporation ensures that the building they manage is a well-kept, harmonious and enjoyable place to live. A place where things just work and problems are quickly rectified. Where residents are proud of their home and property values are protected because the building and its grounds are cared for.

An investment of time is required to efficiently manage all of the duties and potential issues surrounding common property. Lot owners have their own careers and lives to manage – and owner-investors likely live off-site. It’s difficult for lot owners to make such commitments and challenging to arrange compensation for their time. You can have confidence in Melcorp Strata to provide complete, accurate and timely information at every key milestone you reach.
A third party managing the property’s needs reduces potential conflict between lot owners.

Working with a dedicated business results in professional responsibility and courtesy.
