Maybe I have blown an opportunity to expose the actions of C’tee members (past & present), which has cost the OC about $25K by withdrawing (what I consider) a solid case that should proceed to NCAT, at a Mediation Session.
In an analysis, I feel I may have been unduly influenced in the Mediation, as by proceeding it would cause further financial cost to the OC and disruption in OC management, by potentially seeking the removal of the C’tee members. I subsequently regret the decision I took.
Can anyone advise if I am able to re-apply and go through the same process again or would that be rejected, on the basis that the matter has been withdrawn. I understand the C’tee will try and rectify the issue (to cover the main problem) at the next AGM by way of a resolution, and they will have the votes as few Lot owners attend.
The matter has several parts, and I am not prepared to carry the financial burden myself of engaging a Lawyer, for Lot owners who have no interest other that being an owner and paying their levies.
I have discussed the issue with 3 other Lot owners, however while they agree there is an issue, (and agree the C’tee members have done the wrong thing) they are not willing to get involved and do not attend Meetings. The Chair has warned me off contacting other lot owners on the matter (obviously for a reason). The next AGM is due within a couple of months and the current C’tee (as I understand) will re-nominate.
I recall Jimmy wrote in a post some time ago which said something like: “You get the Committee you deserve” when commenting on Lot owners who do not want to get involved in their Strata. I agree with that.
I read an early post by Scotlandx – (now a moderator) related to his experience at NCAT unassisted by a Lawyer, and hope to do the same but doubt I am as savvy and feel I need some guidance.
