Question: How many committee members need to sign off on the approval for repairs or building maintenance work for NSW strata properties?
Our new Strata Manager is approving work quotes when only one or two committee members have OK’d it verbally, without including the other committee members in any correspondence.
Answer: Email direction is generally for matters that does not require a resolution of the strata committee.
Decisions by the strata committee are made in strata committee meetings by simple majority vote, though in practice, sometimes members give their verbal or email direction to the strata manager. The strata manager then obtains quotes or issues a work order and such approval is ratified at the next strata committee meeting.
Email direction is generally for matters that does not require a resolution of the strata committee. Matters that do require resolution should be dealt with at a properly convened meeting of the strata committee.
