I am a new unit owner for a strata property in Armadale, Melbourne.
Looking at the accounts we are spend over a $1,000 a year for 4 on site audit of safety compliance.
4 audits a year seems excessive. You need at least 1 audit a year. What is the recommended number of audits a year ?
If there is a managing agent and you are an owner, they are best people to consult; or perhaps ask a neighbour.
A yearly inspection in my experience, unless someone has an alarm going off inadvertently. The sum mentioned seems modest if it covers four visits . Perhaps a typo? Or if fire compliance hasn’t been done for a while, the building may be undergoing a check for the local council as the result of a fire order in view. If you are an owner, it’ may be up to you to look into this more closely.
Depends on what you mean by ‘audit’ I think.
In my large scheme, NSW, we have monthly, six monthly and yearly ‘inspections’ – as per our AFSS requirements. Any defects found during there inspections are reported to SM/SC for attention – but most do not get attended to until the AFSS is due.
