Question: I have to write a motion for our upcoming general meeting. I was wondering if I could get a sample motion as I have never written a motion before.
Answer: You could start with the below template.
THAT The Owners – Strata Plan No. XXXX *RESOLVE/*SPECIALLY RESOLVE to
*Delete which does not apply
A motion must be worded in such a way that a decision can be made. In other words, it must be worded so that when voting on it, you can vote yes or no to it.
The Owners – Strata Plan No XXXX SPECIALLY RESOLVE pursuant to Section 106 (3) of the Strata Schemes Management Act, 2015 (NSW) to determine by special resolution that:
(a) it is inappropriate to maintain, renew, replace or repair air-conditioning units installed within the Lots at the scheme; and
(b) its decision will not affect the safety of any building, structure or common property in the strata scheme or detract from the appearance of any property in the strata scheme.
