Strata Sessions: Part 1 - Strata Committees from every angle

So, you’ve got something (anything!) to do with an owners corporation?

At Bartier Perry, we work with strata managers, owners corporations and their members every day as part of our busy property, building & construction and insurance practices. With strata properties continuing to increase as a proportion of Australia’s housing stock, and a cooling property market introducing new elements of risk in this particular property segment, we are seeing plenty of activity in this space.

This is why we are commencing a new series of events and client engagement focussing solely on strata property issues and developments.

In this event, Katherine Ruschen, Peter Barakate and Sharon Levy, will provide a guide to all things strata committees, from their different perspectives, being insurance, property and building disputes. The session will cover the following, and more:

  • what you should know about the roles, functions, duties and potential liabilities of a strata committee and its members

  • what to do if the strata committee isn’t acting appropriately

  • managing bullies in strata schemes

  • the process and time limits for making a claim against the builder for defects in a strata scheme.

Whether you are an owner in a strata scheme or sit on the strata committee, have built a strata scheme or are thinking of doing any of these things, this event will have something for you.
