Post 12 – Strata Committee & Strata Manager

This is post is about Strata Committees and has been categorised as “Strata Committee” which is under “Strata Living”.

I have tagged the post “Strata Manager” and Owners Corporation”

It is very important that where a Manager has been hired to carry out some delegated duties by an Owners Corporation through the Strata Committee. Legally therefore, a Starta Manager may act as the agent of the Owners Corporation. These relationships work in the knowledge that the Strata Manager is in a business relationship with an Owners Corporation – and that the Owners have elected a Strata Committee to manage that business relationship.

A Strata manager is the servant of the customer (the Owners Corporation).

The new regulatory framework seeks to ensure local communities continue to enjoy the economic benefits of STRA, while managing potential adverse impacts.

Post 4 – Covid-19 Impacts on Regional Housing Markets and Communities

This post is focused on the way in which COVID 19 and particularly the Delta variant, is a threat to apartment iving and vertical communities living in close proximity to each other. Therefore it has been marked as in the Category “Covid-19” as part of “Strata Living” and Tagged as “COVID-19” and “Building Lockdown”.

You can write here say an introduction to this Document – and then instead of referring to and providing a link, you actually embed the document itself right here.

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit is the first known version (“Neither is there anyone who loves grief itself since it is grief and thus wants to obtain it”). It was found by Richard McClintock, a philologist, director of publications at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia; he searched for citings of consectetur in classical Latin literature, a term of remarkably low frequency in that literary corpus. But we digress … here is the document :-

Post 5 – The NSW Strata Management Act

This post has been categorised under “Legal” as part of “Resources”.

This post has been tagged “Strata Management Act”.

This could be a posting of text … to make a point or commentary.

As an example, let’s say it is a link to a document called the NSW Strata Magement Act 2015.

In this case, we are not going to embed the actual document – we are just going to provide a link to it as it is held on another site – in this case the Government Site – so we have not downloaded it – just linked to it.

Strata Scheme SP 99999

The matter is proceeding and I will be covering this with the Minister for Fair Trading, who seems to have learned everything she knows from Petronius, who observed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we were reorganized. What a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while actually producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.

You can pick any image you like and upload it into the Media Library – and the call it in whenever you like, resize it, move it ow whatever.

You can realign this text and edit or move it around.

Post 7 – Webinar – Buildings in Lockdown

This post is about COVID 19 and so has been categorised as “COVID-19 – Safety & Planning” which appears under the parent category grouping “Strata Living” (as hopefully it will cease to be a big deal sometime soon.)

This post has been tagged as “COVID-19” and also as “Building Lockdown” as I think this may become a big issue for Strata as we come out of the current restrictions.

You can write a post on whatever topic and then refer to let’s say a matter, video, webinar, presentation or maybe a podcast on someone else’s website like this.

  1. Last week, I hosted a podcast on life under lockdown – and we covered what you can do if you believe there is anyone in isolation in your Scheme.
  2. If you missed the webinar you can hear it again here – Podcast 77

This was very inspiring because Fred Nerk explained that alia harum moderatius in has, duo illum affert intellegat cu, cu quo quis graeco. He did not give any details except he wanted my email address as he wanted to send me an email. As a blah blah I am working in an extremely high medico-legal.
