Question: What are the protocol and procedures for dealing with requests from a Lot owner for an EGM and a motion on the agenda?
Answer: Instead of convening a meeting specifically for the requirement, you may place the motion on an agenda for the next general meeting
- No. Schedule 1 Clause 4 (3) requires the Secretary to give effect to the requirement.
- Again, you must give effect to the requirement, however, instead of convening a meeting specifically for the requirement, you may place the motion on an agenda for the next general meeting.
- You must give effect to the requirement. The owners corporation, or rather the Chairperson would determine such matters at the general meeting.
- The strata committee or owners corporation must resolve to do so first and comply with the other requirements of the legislation and regulation.
- It is not really the strata committee’s role to make such demands, but rather the Chairperson’s at the meeting.
- There is no requirement to do so, so we consider any discussions should take place at the meeting.
- No. You must comply with the timeframe specified.
- Again, the legislative timeframe must be observed.
- The intention of a qualified request is to compel the secretary to convene a general meeting. So, no the Strata Committee may not defer.
