Understanding Strata

Maintenance, upgrades and OH&S

Administering maintenance and upgrades is a continuous process for strata schemes.

Apart from practical matters some of the more interesting issues involve who can arrange it and what controls apply.

In all states (except Queensland) strata managers can arrange repairs and maintenance.

In some states monetary limits on spending of various kinds exist so that larger expenditures need general meeting decisions and/or special resolutions.

In some cases, large strata schemes or special kinds of strata schemes need multiple quotes for larger expenditures. And, in some states smaller schemes enjoy some exemptions.

Every quality strata maintenance program is based on regular professional building inspections.
