Effective Managing Agent Under Threat

Unfortunately effective actions by my managing agent has brought vested interests out of the woodwork. Upgrading security has become a threat to their serial and deliberate actions that result in extreme overcrowding, the associated costs, health and safety that entails. I believe factions are being drawn together to overthrow the current agent and no doubt install one more pliable and possibly in cahoots with these vested interests.

It is a challenge that is quite difficult to ward off as there are many overseas landlords who would probably be quite unaware how their apartments are being used as a business venture. As has been often stated it is an area difficult to police, through access restrictions and obstruction from those complicit, including rental agents who give themselves good reason to (probably illegally)ignore their responsibilities.

It is disappointing to say the least to see these powerful interests at play and I feel somewhat hamstrung as to what actions those relatively small number of owner occupiers can take. Even trying to communicate with overseas interests is largely a lost cause as their supposed interests are often managed by these same agents here. 


Indicative evidence can be gathered eg disproportionate number of accesses to the building, security diversions attempted, building materials and furniture regularly brought into the apartment, evidence from trade people who had cause to enter apartments.

Alas it is another story of woe. I just hope I don't have to witness those 12 kids in two bedroom apartments befall to some tragedy. In the meantime, I will have to turn my mind to see how like minded owners can defend against any plans these peddlers have from installing their own stooge as managing agent.

Any ideas from dear readers, aside from those well beaten paths to Fair Trading and CTTT? I would like to think the Fire Brigade would have a reasonable interest, but with coercive powers unknown. REINSW is a possibility, if they are a member, though difficult to present a case without a determination made on overcrowding. I ponder my optons
