Flat Chat is an independently funded website generously supported by our hand-picked sponsors. Between them we have strata managers, strata lawyers, building managers, strata loan specialists, a consultancy that offers an umbrella service with a focus on the physical side of buildings and a cleaning firm, one of the ubiquitous but almost invisible areas of strata management.
Quite simply, without their support this website would not exist. So please take a moment to click on their advertisements to see if there is something they can do for you or go to the "Our sponsors" page (see menu across the very top of the page) to find our more about them.
What do you reckon?
Here's another new feature of the website - a few fun polls (with an occasional serious side). Have a look and see what you think. To see the results so far, you have to make a choice and all will be revealed. And if you have any ideas for a poll you'd like to see, email us at email@example.com.
There are six years' worth of columns, comments and questions in our archive. Just type in a keyword like 'parking' or 'proxy' to see what we've got on hundreds of strata subjects.
Please bear in mind that the older articles may be out of date due to changes in the laws and that they may not apply in your State or Territory.
