Question: When recovering late levy payments, can the Owners Corporation recover the costs of using a lawyer/debt collector from the recalcitrant owner?
Every time I ask for a motion to be placed on the agenda for the AGM, either the Strata Manager or the Strata Committee completely rewrite my motion.
There is illegal parking occurring in our apartment block. I wrote a detailed description of various ways this can be solved and how the Owners Corporation could go about remedying the problem. All of the helpful information has been deleted on the agenda for our up and coming AGM.
Is this kind of action legal?
Answer: It may be that your motion was not drafted in such a way that it could be voted on in a for or against manner.
If you have submitted a “required” motion under Schedule 2, Clause 4 of the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 (NSW), your motion (and explanation and background information) should be included verbatim. However, it may be that your motion was not drafted in such a way that it could be voted on in a for or against manner and the strata manager re-drafted it for that reason.
