We all have a moral duty to bring Owners’ attention to decisions that are breaching the law in NSW, Victoria and Queensland body corporate.
It’s about ensuring our legislation and democracy is retained.
Committees don’t defame someone for ‘blowing the whistle.’ They find other reasons to, and they offer incentives or have a payoff for keeping their mouths shut. Partly, they get to keep their position and avoid public disgrace in their complex or building.
This is a huge problem in Queensland, as body corporate managers are ‘unregulated’ and accountable to no-one except the committee, and residential caretakers have a job for life under the current legislation, which Jimmy says is corrupt, and committee members are lay people.
But when voting Owners on committee are naïve or just plain ignorant and support each other in acting perversely towards the BCCM Act – something has to be done. What will you do?
Justice will only come when body corporate managers are regulated, residential caretaker legislation amended, committees investigated and strong fines imposed.”
And that will only happen when you MPs ealise that strata owners are a powerful group and only sucking up to developers could lose them their seats. Organise, make an noise and join UOAQ.
