    Hi

    Our strata had a general meeting and passed some resolutions but they haven’t sent the minutes to me yet. We are a small block of 4 units so I believe I should have received the meeting minutes within 7 days of the meeting. What are the consequences of minutes arriving after the 7 day limit?

    Thanks

    The limit is 14 days and in a small block like yours all owners should be provided with a copy. The maximum penalty for failure to do so is $550 (but I’m not sure who would pay that).

    This is what Schedule 1 of the Act says in relation to General Meeting minutes:

    22   Minutes

    (1) Records to be kept The owners corporation must keep full and accurate minutes of its meetings that include minutes of all motions passed at its meetings.

    (2) Distribution of minutes and records of motions Within 14 days after a meeting, the owners corporation must provide copies of the minutes of the meeting in the following manner—

    (a)  by giving each member of the strata committee a copy,

    (b)  by giving each owner a copy, if the strata scheme is not a large strata scheme,

    (c)  by giving an owner a copy, if the strata scheme is a large strata scheme and the owner requests a copy within the period of 14 days.

    Maximum penalty—5 penalty units.
