At the last AGM in April, a vote was cast re the payment for a fence on private property. The fence was erected by a committee member for the owner, then paid for from Strata Levies. At the AGM, the owners voted to have the owner remove the fence. I think this extreme but surely the owner should pay for the fence some $1400.
This was committees response after AGM.
‘Two Committee members, spoke to NSW Fair Trading and advised them that the SC mistakenly erected the fence without prior approval of the Owners Corporation. It was advised that the main reason the fence was erected was to provide security primarily to Units with these Units being located adjacent to a public thoroughfare. It also improves the aesthetics for this area. At the AGM, it was determined that the fence had to be removed even though it had been fully paid for ($1,430). Removal would also add a further cost of $300. The SC feel it would be very mean spirited to remove the fence as it enhances the area. NSW Fair Trading advised that should this matter be taken to a tribunal hearing, it was extremely unlikely that the adjudicator would issue an order saying the fence had to be removed despite it being erected without following correct procedure’
