    I am a new unit owner for a strata property in Armadale, Melbourne.

    Looking at the accounts we are spend over a $1,000 a year for 4 on site audit of safety compliance.

    4 audits a year seems excessive. You need at least 1 audit a year. What is the recommended number of audits a year ?

    One audit is sufficient usually. This may depend on what is being checked, audit is a pretty broad term, it could mean a range of things.


    If there is a managing agent and you are an owner, they are best people to consult; or perhaps ask a neighbour.

    A yearly inspection in my experience, unless someone has an alarm going off inadvertently. The sum mentioned seems modest if it covers four visits . Perhaps a typo?  Or if fire compliance hasn’t been done for a while, the building may be undergoing a check for the local council as the result of a fire order in view. If you are an owner, it’ may be up to you to look into this more closely. 


    Depends on what you mean by ‘audit’ I think.

    In my large scheme, NSW,  we have monthly, six monthly and yearly ‘inspections’ – as per our AFSS requirements. Any defects found during there inspections are reported to SM/SC for attention – but most do not get attended to until the AFSS is due.
