Hi there!

Strata News from Tower Body Corporate

We hope you had a lovely relaxing break over the Christmas period.

The new year usually sees most of us start off with making NY Resolutions that we have good intentions of keeping, but unfortunately often end up breaking.  We think it's easier to pledge that the year pans out to be a rolling series of occasions devoted to seeing, doing and learning new things that really appeal.   Do you agree?

In this edition of Strata News

  • we share a couple of posts around a topic we receive questions about regularly - body corporate levies
  • we welcome some new clients
  • we take a look at what's been making news
  • and share a few ideas on what's on around the Gold Coast

If you have a question or need some help, don't hesitate to ask.

Best regards

Kelly Borell and team at Tower Body Corporate

What happens to the money you pay for body corporate fees?
It’s a good question, and every lot owner (or potential lot owner) is entitled to be given a comprehensive answer, and fully transparent documentation that shows exactly how the fees are spent and why.

What are the options for paying your body corporate levies?
As a lot owner, you making a commitment to make Body Corporate levy payments when you purchased. How often are you required to pay your levies, and what happens if you don’t pay on time? 

What are the implications for the innocent Lot Owners?
No doubt you've seen the media coverage of the awful situation with Opal Tower in Sydney.  Our founder, Allan Clair, raised a few pertinent questions for all Lot Owners to consider, because this could happen to anyone.  Join the conversation on LinkedIn below.
We are thrilled and honoured to have been contracted as the new Body Corporate Administrators for the Properties listed below.

We extend a big welcome to the Committees and Lot Owners of each Scheme, and very much look forward to getting to know you and helping you to manage your Schemes efficiently.
