A NSW lot owner has requested to waive a debt recovery fee claiming notification of such (by mail or email?) was never received.
The Strata Manager has forwarded this request to the S/C for a majority determination stating the owner should pay (which I agree) but if the S/C approve to waive the fee then it will be paid by O/C funds.
Considering our admin fund is in severe deficit and the fact it would set a precedent – I am totally against it.
My question therefore, is this a matter for the S/C? I wouldn’t have thought so.
There is liability for the cost of debt recovery written into the legislation. Ignorance is no defence under law. The owners should pay – end of story. And if I were another owner who was facing paying a share of debt recovery costs, I’d be filling out a dispute form with Fair Trading and NCAT right now.
