In our building [fewer that the maximum number of owners] nominated themselves to be on the strata committee. All these years whoever nominated themselves, got automatically selected to be on the committee as By Laws allow up to nine people to be on committee in NSW.
For the first time we had a ballot (emailed) asking owners, how many members they prefer to be on committee and owners (less than half the owners voted as most of the units are investment properties) chose [half the usual number] and voted for them making the remaining half ineligible to be on the committee.
I feel this was planned by few owners and existing committee members so that, they can exclude others. This was done by door knocking and convincing few owners. Please see attached election form. When I questioned Strata Manager, she told me it’s the standard procedure. But we never had an issue like all these years in building.
I want to go to Fair Trading to resolve this. Do you think I have a chance here?
