What did Resi Body Corporate change in the first 6 months?
The Chairperson and Committee were frustrated with the previous manager for failing to act to assist the installation of NBN at the property, which was overlooked by the developer. The only way work would progress was for the Chairperson to become involved and complete the follow-ups themselves.
At Resi Body Corporate, we acknowledge the owners have engaged a strata manager to facilitate repairs and works at the property, and we don’t think it’s right for any individual owners to be doing work that should be conducted by a manager. Once we were appointed, we stepped in straight away to proactively communicate with NBN and the owners to get the NBN successfully installed.
Identification of building defects
Once Resi Body Corporate is appointed as the manager, one of our first tasks is to conduct a site inspection so our managers become familiar with the property and know the locations of buildings, bins, car spots, meters etc.
Our managers will also review any building plans received from the previous manager, and after comparing the building plans to the site inspection the strata manager noticed that a bin corral was never constructed. The manager raised this with owners to discuss the options to rectify the defect.
