Hi there!

Strata News from Tower Body Corporate

The arrival of Spring is a time for new things to blossom, a time for a clean out, a time for a maintenance refresh, and for welcoming new ideas and activities into our lives.  It is important though, that changes are done correctly, and actually do improve things and bring us more value.

In this newsletter we share articles relating to change and responsibilities:
  • What’s in a name? The roles people play in looking after your building
  • The "New Normal" of Assigning Management Rights
  • Renovating your Apartment – Body Corporate Requirements

If you have a question on this, or need any help at all with other matters, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best regards

Kelly, Tammy, Rachael and Allan,  Tower Body Corporate

The roles people play in looking after your building
Keeping your complex in good shape is a collaborative effort. It’s good to have at least a basic understanding of who does what, and how they all work together. That way, you know who you need to talk to when you want something done, and have your say in how your environment looks and feels.
The "New Normal" of Assigning Management Rights
You may have a live-in building manager at your complex, who has bought the "management rights" to your building, which they will run as a business on-site. Find out what the building manager does, and how the whole process for assigning management rights works.  Very useful to know if changes are in the air.
Renovating your Apartment – Body Corporate Requirements
There’s nothing like a makeover to give you the fresh change you want this Spring!
But bear in mind, that even though you own the Unit, there are certain things you will need Body Corporate Committee approval for, before you proceed.

"Tower Body Corporate managed our complex for nearly 4 years, always giving service beyond the call of duty.  Their charges are not hidden like the newly appointed BCM. Owners obviously voted blindly without realizing what amazing value and outstanding service that Tower Body Corporate has given Palmerston Tower"  Marie Taylor
