when do the office bearers of the Owners Corporation  go out of office. The NSW SSMA in section 35, clause (1) (d) states that it is at “ the end of the last meeting where a new committee is elected” but our Strata Manager has advised it is at the beginning of the AGM so our chairman cannot chair the AGM. 

Could someone please clarify

Don’t know about NSW. In the ACT, our strata act says the committee chair is also the chair of the AGM unless unable or unwilling to do it, in which case the AGM has to elect a chair for the meeting. Without having read the NSW legislation, I would assume the old executive remains the executive until the AGM has conducted the election of the new committee. Once the result of the election is declared by the chair of the AGM, the new committee is the executive, except that the old chair would continue to chair until the end of the AGM.

Your strata manager is incorrect, Sir Humphrey summarises it well.

I don’t know why your manager is advising something that is contrary to what is stated in the Act, perhaps you should ask him/her?
