If your Owners Corporation is being inefficiently managed then both you and your building suffers. Melcorp Strata can help stop the damage and restore your Owners Corporation to a positive and thriving position.

Our team will undertake a comprehensive Owners Corporation health check of your building including a full review of the financials, contracts and agreements, as well as the short-term and long-term objectives of the Committee.

If you think your building will benefit from a new Owners Corporation Manager, we can provide you with a clear and simple considered pathway to follow. Check out our five-step guide to changing Owners Corporation Management below.

Step 1: Ask for a copy of your current contract

Ask your current Owners Corporation Manager for a copy of your current ‘Contract of Appointment’. Like we mentioned earlier, it’s all about the timing. The single most important thing you need to know is when your current Contract of Appointment expires. You need to allow sufficient time to undertake all the necessary legal steps. If you’re not sure or need an expert to review the contract, reach out to Melcorp Strata today.

Step 2: Obtain Quotes

The Committee obtain quotes from several sources and compares the value for money and expertise on offer, as well as reviewing the costings for additional services.

Step 3: Call an Owners Corporation Committee Meeting

Organise a Committee Meeting to discuss your options. Alternatively, you can invite all Owners to a Special General Meeting or arrange a postal ballot to discuss and vote on changing your Owners Corporation Manager.

Step 4: Vote

Cast your vote to appoint Melcorp Strata as your Owners Corporation Manager. You will need the support of more than 50% of the votes to be successful – this applies to Committee Meetings or Special General Meetings.

Step 5: Moving Forward

If the motion has been successful, simply provide the meeting minutes to your new Melcorp Strata contact. Our professional team will take care of the rest – including notifying your current Owners Corporation Manager.
