How to Change Body Corporate Manager?

Service, Service and Service.

You are leaving behind a Strata Manager who did not ensure that your building maintenance was performed in a cost-effective and timely fashion, and who did not respond to the owners requests. Check references, and study applicants service contracts carefully to ensure you don’t end up with the same problem again. Your contract needs to itemise all the services they will provide – and you should be wary of any Manager who does not itemize all the areas of concern in their initial contract.

In our experience this is a sign of problems to come. In general, you also want to choose a manager who has specialized in your area and has established relationships with local contractors in case of repairs or other issues. We can help you identify and examine the qualifications and reputation of your applicants.

 

Price is What You Pay, Value is What You Get.

Like any other professional service, the lowest price is not always the best value. Strata management pricing isn’t always what it seems so check the total cost carefully and pay attention to any exemptions and exclusions in the pricing table. Your total cost will include management fees, disbursements, service charges, attendance at meetings, insurance commissions and fee increases over time.
