In December 1999 I sold up my strata flat in Melbourne and moved to NSW where I bought another strata flat with of course a different Strata Manager.
I paid my current strata fees until July 2020 (by BPay) but in July I mistakenly clicked on the wrong recipient and the payment went to my Mel strata managers instead of the current ones. I didn’t pick this up until recently when I got an arrears notice from my current managers.
There followed phone calls and emails with the Mel strata mgrs and I sent a copy of my bank a/c showing the incorrect transfer which they acknowledged and said I would be reimbursed. .
But now they are quibbling and saying I can’t be reimbursed until the current owners of my former Mel flat have paid the July fee themselves……., (and it’s a mystery to me why the current owners did not pick up that someone else …me….. had paid their fees). .
I pointed out that I made the payment to themselves the Strata managers and therefore it’s between me and them but they talk me down repeating over and over that the current owners have to pay their arrears first and the owners are dragging their heels. .
I am thoroughly confused by this as it was a simple and straightforward keyboard slip on my part , it’s clearly shown in my bank a/c, which they acknowledged. Surely I don’t have to take legal action over this?
Please, what can I do?. I would appreciate advice. Thanks.
