Question: Can Owners Corporation members use their unit entitlements when calling a poll vote to form a strata committee?
Answer: In some circumstances, the motion can be decided according to the value of unit entitlements voting for or against.
In short, yes. Generally, a motion put to a meeting, or an election of officers of the owners corporation or members of the strata committee, is to be decided according to a majority of votes of owners voting for or against based on one vote per lot.
However, if a poll is demanded by a person present and entitled to vote on a motion or for the election of officers of the owners corporation or members of the strata committee at the meeting, the motion is to be decided according to the value of unit entitlements voting for or against.
