Question: Our building is 38 lots. Is our strata committee required to post an agenda for ordinary general committee meetings to the notice board of the owners corporation?
Answer: While the notice is routinely sent out by post to owners, tenants must be given notice either by post OR by displaying it on the notice board.
The relevant section for non-large strata schemes is Schedule 2 – while the notice is routinely sent out by post to owners, tenants must be given notice either by post OR by displaying it on the notice board:
7 Notice of general meetings other than first AGM
- This clause applies to general meetings other than the first annual general meeting of an owners corporation.
- Written notice of a meeting must, at least 7 days before the meeting, be given to each owner.
- Notice of a meeting must also be given, at least 7 days before the meeting, to each first mortgagee or covenant chargee on the strata roll if an item on the agenda is one in which the mortgagee or covenant chargee may cast a priority vote. A priority vote may be cast in the circumstances set out in clause 24.
- Nothing in this Part requires an owner to give notice of a meeting to himself or herself.
11 Notice to be given to tenants
- A copy of the agenda for a meeting must, at least 7 days before the meeting is held:
- be given to each tenant, who has been notified to the owners corporation in accordance with this Act as a tenant of the lot, or
- prominently displayed on any notice board required to be maintained by or under the by-laws on some part of the common property.
- Copies of other documents relating to a meeting may be given to each tenant of a lot if the owners corporation so decides.
