Recently Capitol hosted an information forum in a live Q&A format in Brisbane, Redcliffe and Gold Coast.
The panel consisted of Chris Irons, Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management, Mark Mellick of Active Law, Trevor Rawnsley of ARAMA and Ian D’Arcy, Capitol’s Managing Director.
Owners had an opportunity to pre-submit questions on body corporate related topics and ask live questions at the individual seminars, either via microphone or through an online application. This created a lively debate amongst the panel on how best to deal with different body corporate matters from their own unique view-points.
The Commissioner firstly presented on common issues occurring at committee level and also touched on the draft changes to the regulation modules which are now open for consultation. Capitol encourages all owners to read the draft changes and get involved by providing feedback. Now is the time to act, as consultation closes at 5pm on 30 October 2019.
The panel spent some time going into detail about all sorts of issues, including:
- Responsibility for maintenance of failed waterproofing/internal broken window seals
- Best practice performance management for caretakers
- How best to have good working relationships amongst committee members
- How best to deal with noise complaints and information on the breach process
The Brisbane seminar was video recorded and you can watch it here. We invite you to visit our owner online training to get the notes and to watch educational and interesting body corporate related videos and share with your committees.
