Thank you to the participants in this discussion, it has been a great help toward answering a similar dilemma at our complex. We have a middle-aged owner who is accompanied by her irascible father at both general and strata committee meetings. The owner is a member of the strata committee but the father is neither an owner nor a resident, nor a proxy holder nor committee member. Both dominate and bully the other owners, with the father lately doing most of the talking. The strata manager conducts the meetings, and defers to the wishes of this pair, with minimal interaction with the other owners.
From the discussion below it is apparent that the Secretary of the owners corporation would be entitled to instruct the strata manager, before the meeting, to inform the owner of correct procedure regarding attendance and speaking at meetings and request her compliance, so that embarrassment could be avoided at the meeting when the strata manager (acting as chair) should be obliged to request that the father leave?
The father does not only interfere at meetings, but also on a day to day basis. He intercepts tradesmen and even consultants (such as engineers) as they get out of their vehicles and then proceeds to tell them what he wants them to do, how to do it etc. He records images and video of their work on his phone. Before they leave they are taken inside his daughter’s unit for a lengthy period of time. In the case of consultants, numerous phone calls are made to them by both the father and daughter, so that when reports are finally issued they recite incorrect information leading to inappropriate recommendations.
Any suggestions for stopping this interference? He is definitely not a kindly person being helpful.
