From the Forum: Zombie proxies and dead levies


Here’s a question that becomes more relevant as increasing numbers of oldies move into strata … and then pass on.

Obviously, the petty politics of strata schemes are the last thing on the minds of their loved ones, but what if there’s a vital vote coming up?

Is it their heirs who get to vote on issues or elect committee members?  Their lawyers? Their executors?

And what happens to their proxy votes?  Do they expire with the deceased?  Or is their such a thing as Zombie proxies, still turning up for meetings and casting votes, long after the proxy donors have gone to the last AGM in the sky?

We  have an answer … HERE.

Elsewhere in the Forum:

  • How do you know who to charge, and how much, when the old strata manager has gone with no record of who has paid what? That’s HERE.
  • Can the committee glue planter boxes in the car park – to stop illegal parking – without a general meeting vote (due to changes to common property). That’s HERE.
  • With all this hysteria about – sorry, public interest in – defects, how do you choose a surveyor to check for fatal flaws in your new apartment block? That’s HERE.
  • Is there a better low-cost dispute resolution option than NCAT? That’s HERE.
  • What do you do when your committee has received quotes to fix your balcony flooding issue … then does nothing? That’s HERE.

By the time you read this, there will be even more questions and answers on the Flat Chat Forum. See you there!
